Two seriously luxe changes are coming to Boylston Street building, The Heritage on the Garden: an expanded Hermès space, scheduled for completion this upcoming November, and the introduction of Bottega Veneta, which signed a lease for 2,500 square feet of space.
The plan for the ever-Parisian Hermès is to more than double its size, moving on up to occupy the first and second floors on the Boylston and Arlington corner of the property. Included in the makeover is a new corner entrance and logo-adorned awnings on both levels of the renovated store. Meanwhile, Bottega Veneta—known for its master-crafted Italian leather goods and full men's and women's ready-to-wear collections—is projected to open early December.
