    Consider it one more positive sign that the South Loop is bouncing back.

    The Shops at Roosevelt Collection, a 340,000 square foot property at Roosevelt and Wells has signed up its first round of retail tenants.

    According to Crain's, the newcomers include clothing stores H&M, Republic of Couture, White House | Black Market and Francesca's Collection, home goods retailer Z Gallerie, restaurants BlackFinn American Grill and Chica Loco and specialty stores Ulta Salon and Fleet Feet Sports.

    The development fell victim to the economic downturn in 2007 and was sold to a new owner.

    An ICON theatre has been the most visible tenant since the development opened.

    The shopping center offers 340,000 square feet of retail space, which is now a little more than 50 percent filled, according to Crain's.
