The outdoor mall is expected to in March 2017 and will feature a Whole Foods, Pottery Barn, Shake Shack, Lily Rain, and more. A food hall will serve as the entertainment center of the development complete with a brewery and a stage for live bands. The Summit is proud to be the first major mall in the region showcasing local restaurants, not just national chains. Area talent who will be leasing space include Toa Green of Crank and Boom ice cream, Ilias Pappas of Athenian Grill and Ouita Michel of Holly Hill.

The developers of the new mall targeted this area because of the high average household income in the area. While Lexington has an average household income of nearly $50,000, the residents near the mall have an average household income of over $73,000. There are homes in a wide range of price points that are convenient to the mall, and homeowners take advantage of living in a great part of town.

In addition to being close to all that shopping, residents are just six miles from the center of town and less than five miles from the University of Kentucky campus. Man O’ War Boulevard is an east-west connector linking the airport to the west to Hamburg shopping and I-75 in the east. Just behind the Fayette Mall is the 176-acre Shillito Park with walking trails, tennis courts, baseball fields and more.
