LANDMARK STORE LIVES: La Samaritaine, the landmark department store owned by LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton, has cleared a key hurdle toward reopening after Paris authorities approved its plans for a complex combining stores, offices, housing and a hotel. “The conditions are now in place to anticipate the opening of the new Samaritaine, eagerly anticipated by Parisians, in 2013,” the retailer said. The Art Deco-style building, located between the Seine River and the Rue de Rivoli, shuttered abruptly in June 2005 because it did not meet city fire safety standards. The reborn site will be designed by the Pritzker Prize-winning Japanese agency SANAA.
