Bel Air Mall No More: Rouse Properties unveils Plans for The Shoppes at Bel Air, P.F. Chang’s Among New Tenantsby Kelli Dugan
Mobile, AL – Rouse Properties Inc. unveiled Monday its planned reimagining of Bel Air Mall to The Shoppes at Bel Air, complete with confirmation of plans for Belk Inc. to open a 237,000-square-foot flagship store in the soon-to-be-vacated Sears location. In addition, Rouse will launch a “complete transformation” of the center, including redevelopment of enclosed mall space into an “engaging streetscape with retail and high-volume restaurant concepts fronting on Airport Boulevard,” the company said in a press release. New York-based Rouse completed its $135 million purchase of the 1.3 million-square-foot mall – the only enclosed regional mall within a 60-mile radius – in May 2014.
