Replanning the mall property in Tri-County would make a GREAT urban planning project at DAAP.

This wouldn't surprise me, with Dillard's pulling out of Tri-County, Macy's sees the writing on the wall. It's really hard to stop the bleeding of a dying mall. Much of Tri-County's demise was due to the $75 million pumped into Forest Fair Mall by the now defunct Mills Corporation and Springdale failing to invest ieating into their busin the shopping district by sprucing up the area.

Then you also have Northgate

They are beginning to talk about a second department store.   I think it will be Macy's.  They want out of Tri-County Mall.

I went to a Springdale Zoning Board meeting last fall and one of the people on the board said, "I just got back from Boca Raton, Florida and it gave me some great ideas for Tri-County. I think we should look into condo towers. Can we mandate minimum building heights in a PUD?"

I kid you not, they are completely clueless about what to do with that mall.

For it's here that fine arts with the frivolous twine,
A veritable Deutschland just Over the Rhine.

Give it fifteen years: they can add some residential, a hotel, and call it an indoor lifestyle center - for those people who love lifestyle centers like Liberty Center, but hate having to be out in the cold, heat, rain, or snow.

^Definitely a step up from a mega-mall. Anyone remember back when Mills was a strong company and was considering building a mega-mall by the I-75 rest stop?

What worries me about this center primarily is the tenant mix. It's weak. Very weak given the location, market, etc. But I think i did a good enough job expressing those concerns upthread.

Its refreshing to hear a developer planning for how their product can help the community rather than not worrying about it at all.

Liberty Twp. rings up another I-75 developer

"We've already had over 30 calls from companies," said Brian Copfer, senior vice president for Miller-Valentine, which recently announced its purchase contract for 88 acres across Interstate 75 from the $350 million Liberty Center project.
