WEST LOOP — Clothing retailer Anthropologie is opening a new shop in Fulton Market, according to a report.

Anthropologie has signed a 10-year lease for 11,500 square feet to open a store in the 1000 W. Randolph St. building, according to Crain's Chicago.

The new store will be located a block away from a planned Free People store at 1101 W. Randolph St. Both brands are owned by Urban Outfitters. 

Starbucks has also signed on to lease a 3,100-square-foot space in the 1000 W. Randolph building, a Starbucks spokeswoman previously confirmed. The new Starbucks will likely carry the brand's line of rare, small-batch Reserve coffees in shop. Representatives for West Loop developer Sterling Bay, who owns the building, did not return calls Wednesday. 

The new Anthropologie Fulton Market store will be the brand's sixth in Chicago's city limits. A representative for Anthropologie could not be reached for comment Wednesday. 

Sandwiched in between the neighborhood's destination restaurants and warehouses, more and more retailers are beginning to call the West Loop home. Lifestyle retail shop Rider, custom suit shop BLVDier, luxury retailer Billy Reid, Kit + Ace and M2057 by Maria Pinto all opened in the neighborhood in 2015.

Home to Google's Midwest headquarters, the booming Fulton Market neighborhood is poised to welcome a slew of new hotels in the next few years and McDonald's corporate headquarters at the old Harpo site in 2018.
