  •  Francesca's is a chic boutique where you will find clothing, bright baubles, and small gifts. 
  • Starbuck's Reserve, an upscale version of the coffee chain.
  • Kimptom Rowan Hotel with a beautiful roof with a pool and city view. This boutique hotel has carefully designed rooms and suites and exquisite restaurants.
  • Free People is another clothing brand that offers the latest trends for women who love to live freely through art, fashion, music, and travel.

  • Tommy Bahama Restaurant and Bar.
  • Stout Burgers & Beers, an upscale neighborhood restaurant offering gourmet burgers and a fine selection of beers. 
  • Il Corso, genuine Italian hospitality combined with fine dining. 

"This line-up shows the quality and diversity of tenants to come," President Braun added. "Once complete, this project will put Palm Springs back on the map as a top destination. Visitors can enjoy staying at luxurious accommodations, shopping eclectic brands, and dining at incredible restaurants -- all within walking distance and surrounded by beautiful scenery and views few can match."
