A makeover is in store for one of the region’s biggest retail properties: Galleria at Sunset, the 1 million-square-foot regional mall in Henderson. Forest City Enterprises Inc., the property’s owner-operator, is launching a $7 million upgrade that is scheduled for completion this fall,The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports. VCC USA will serve as contractor for the project.

Aside from a 2004 expansion, the project will be the first of its kind at the center since it opened in 1996. Galleria at Sunset is one of only three enclosed non-outlet malls in the Las Vegas Valley outside of the Las Vegas Strip.

Remodeling plans call for using materials like stone and wood to bring a more refined design to the Galleria’s current colorful exterior. The mall’s 140 stores and 13 food spots will also receive upgrades. In addition to the style revamp, Galleria at Sunset will feature a brand new family restroom which will include private nursing rooms and a family waiting area.

The renovations will also create room for a major new tenant: H&M, which will take a 20,000-square-foot, two-level space. To accommodate the store, Boutique Talulah, Express, Express Men’s and Bath & Body Works will relocate. Galleria at Sunset’s current anchor tenants include Dillard’s, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Macy’s, J.C. Penney and Kohl’s.
