Michael Jordan to be a part of University Village Marketplace

May '09
University Village Marketplace, a mix of dining, retail and offices in the heart of Chicago's historic Maxwell Street, will be the site of the country's first Michael Jordan "Twenty-Three" athletic apparel and footwear store.

Northbrook, Ill.-based retailer Sportsland has leased 2,800 square feet at 1313 and 1315 S. Halsted, with plans to develop the Jordan-themed store in a shared space with a new urban retail concept called AKIN. Both are scheduled to open in June 2009.

"We're excited to be a part of University Village Marketplace," said Sportsland CFO Lou Karnezis. "It's a great location that was personally approved by Michael Jordan. Not only is it on the south end of the UIC campus, but it offers easy access to downtown Chicago and attractions like the United Center, as well as the suburbs via several major expressways."

Twenty-Three, named after the basketball legend's signature number, will carry exclusive lines of men's footwear and apparel, said Karnezis. Locations currently operate in Berlin, London and Paris.

AKIN will carry footwear (Adidas, Converse, Nike, Puma, Vans) and apparel (Crooks & Castles, IM King, Kiks Tyo, Wrong Wroks) for men and women, according to Karnezis.

About University Village Marketplace is located at the south campus of the University of Illinois at Chicago - and on the former site of the historic and renowned Maxwell Street "open air" market - University Village Marketplace is a unique and family-friendly shopping area composed of businesses, restaurants, taverns, retail outlets and service shops. Everything is conveniently dispersed along Halsted and Maxwell Streets, Roosevelt Road and Union Avenue.
