Chestnut Hill Shopping Center has been renamed ‘The Street’

Chestnut Hill Shopping Center, which includes Star Market, Legal Sea Foods, the Container Store, and City Sports, has been renamed “The Street,” said the shopping center’s owner and manager, WS Development.

The center opened in 1950. With a wave of new tenants gearing up to open stores, WS Development felt a new name was needed to better reflect the center’s “transformation into a walkable retail destination.”


Among the tenants coming soon are Showcase Super Lux featuring Davio’s Cucina, the Sports Club/LA, Pottery Barn, lululemon athletica, Pinkberry, and Treat Cupcake Bar, WS Development said in its press release.

“Chestnut Hill Shopping Center was part of a then-revolutionary wave of retail projects opening around the country just after World War II,” David Fleming, corporate marketing director for WS Development, said in a statement. “Today, however, the project has a new, powerful, cutting-edge, configuration and group of specialty shops, dining establishments, and entertainment.”

Rebranding it as ‘The Street’ more accurately reflects “the sophisticated offerings and urban experience our customers can find here,” he added.
