NORWALK, Conn. — On day two of The SoNo Collection, Norwalkers continued trying on their mall to see if it would fit.
Families were everywhere in the 700,000+ square foot structure, on the roof looking at Oyster Shell Park, in what Brookfield Properties is calling the Magnificent Room and on the roly-poly chairs in the center concourse area.
The SoNo Collection opened Friday with 11 small stores plus one anchor, Nordstrom. More than 60 additional tenants are expected, along with Bloomingdale’s, the second anchor. Some of the unopened store’s windows appeared to have been dressed up overnight; it didn’t look like there’s all that much commerce is going on yet, but stay tuned.
NancyOnNorwalk just couldn’t resist taking more photos. So here goes Take II.
And off in the distance, there’s an Amazon truck passing over the railroad tracks.
These chairs on the retail area middle floor have constant usage.
The top floor area at right is expected to be filled by Pinstripes, a bowling alley. For now, it’s decorated by Cat Coquillette, a future mall vendor.

It’s expected that The SoNo Collection will dress up its parking garage with segments of pipe-like metal. Note the little pieces of metal fastened to the structure, at left.
The red panel facing the escalator, adorned with sequin-like decorations, draws attention from many passers by.
