0 Comment

Retailers and real estate agents attending last month’s International Council of Shopping Centers conference in Las Vegas got a sneak peak at a major Dallas mall redo plan.

Developers and investors working on redevelopment of Dallas’ Southwest Center mall and architects with Omniplan showed design concepts for the planned revamp of the southwest Dallas regional shopping center.

Mall owner Peter Brodsky is working with Dallas developers Frank Mihalopoulos and Terrence Maiden to revamp the 40-year-old Dallas shopping center at U.S. Highway 67 and Interstate 20.

The Omniplan architectural renderings show large sections of the enclosed shopping center replaced with outdoor areas.

“We are going to tear down parts of the mall and create some open space,” Mihalopoulos said. “It’s going to be a mixed-use project.”

Along with retail, Mihalopoulos said the developers are looking at adding offices, medical facilities, an education center and other uses to the mall site.

“We are talking to hotels too,” he said. “We want to bring jobs and people and shoppers.”

Mihalopoulos said the plans shown at the ICSC meeting were just concepts of what could happen at the old mall.

“Right now we are laying the foundation and formulating our plans,” he said. “We had some really good meetings with folks and it got a good reception.”
