The Village at Meridian may have the first new stores for its planned expansion.

Village owner Centercal has posted an updated leasing flyer which shows Williams-Sonoma and Pottery Barn taking space on the first floor of a to-be-built building near H&M to the west of the current village core.

Pottery Barn would take up 13,153 square feet and Williams-Sonoma would occupy 13,147 square feet according to the leasing plan. The Pottery Barn would be about 30% larger than the current Boise store while Williams-Sonoma would be nearly three times as large.

Village officials won't confirm the plan posted their website, however.

"The Village at Meridian currently has no formal agreements for the expansion of the center. There has been discussions around expanding to the west and building out the area toward Eagle Road, but there are no updates or changes at this point," Village general manager Hugh Crawford said in a prepared statement in response to a question by BoiseDev.

Officials for Williams-Sonoma and Pottery Barn (which share the same corporate owner) did not respond to comment - including questions about the future of current locations at Boise Towne Square.

If built, Williams Sonoma would compete with nearby Sur La Table and Pottery Barn would go head-to-head to Z Gallerie.

Other retailers confirmed

Crawford did confirm some other additions to the existing Village footprint.

"Announced retail tenants for first quarter include Panache Aveda Day Spa, Comme les Filles and American Eagle along with several new office tenants who are currently under construction," he said.

Panache will open its fourth local location - adding to two spas in Boise and one in Eagle. Comme les Filles is a Ketchum-based retailer of women's clothing and accessories. American Eagle Outfitters is a teen-focused retailer of fashions which currently has a store in Boise Towne Square.
