After renderings painted a better picture of Walnut Street's newest retail/commercial building, another look into those Uniqlo rumors was in order.

But alas, despite our (totally biased) opinion that Uniqlo's futuristic feel would be a perfect fit for the new, all-glass building, the Japanese clothing chain continues to elude us. "No Philly plans yet," says Steven H. Gartner of Metro Commercial Real Estate, the organization in charge of leasing the property. "Not that we haven't tried to get them to go there!" In fact, no retailers have signed on yet for the location, but we're still going to keep our fingers crossed for Uniqlo. Stay tuned for updates and read about retailers confirmed to be coming to Philly.
