One of the first planned communities in the country, Short Hills was the dream of Stewart Hartshorn, a poet and nature lover who purchased 1,500 acres (6.1 km 2) of New Jersey land in the late 1800s. There he pursued his lifelong dream, reading good books and writing his verse in a tranquil, natural setting. Throughout the first half of the century, the suburban community grew quickly, and local residents desired quality shopping within their local setting. Their vision began to take shape in 1949 when the Prudential Insurance Company of America acquired a large tract of land where The Mall at Short Hills and part of the Canoe Brook Country Club now sit. Seven years later, B. Altman opened a 130,000-square-foot (12,000 m 2) store on the land and eventually added an additional 50,000 square feet (4,600 m 2) to meet market demands. Local residents continued their demand for expanded retailing and in the early 1960s, a small center opened. The open-air center included Bonwit Teller along with retailers such as FAO Schwarz, Pottery Barn and Brentano's. The momentum continued as America's largest Bloomingdale's premiered on the site in 1967. The 243,000-square-foot (22,600 m 2) store included an entire floor devoted to furniture and decorative accessories. In addition, smaller "boutiques" were created in the store such as, Young World, Delicacies Shop, Au Gourmet, a men’s store, and a restaurant. In 1974, Prudential Insurance Company of America began working with The Taubman Company, The Mall at Short Hills' current owner. By 1980, the two had completed a two-year, $100 million project to enclose the mall, which at that time included 1,160,000 of gross leasable space and three anchor stores. New retailers included Godiva Chocolatier, Black Star and Frost, The Limited and Gap. The following year, 1981, Abraham and Strauss joined the center. Then The Mall at Short Hills grew again. The first phase of a major expansion, begun in 1993, was completed in November 1994 adding a 100,000-square-foot (9,300 m 2) Saks Fifth Avenue, a totally renovated Bloomingdale's and Abraham & Straus became Macy’s. The next expansion phase was completed in August 1995 adding two anchors"a 137,000-square-foot (12,700 m 2) Neiman Marcus and a 188,000-square-foot (17,500 m 2) Nordstrom"and many new specialty stores including Tiffany & Co., Crate & Barrel, Polo Ralph Lauren, Fendi, and MaxMara. Today, The Mall at Short Hills boasts an unparalleled department and specialty store offering, establishing it as the region’s preeminent shopping center.
