Mall Owner Has Big Plans for Shops at Riversideby Joan Verdon
Hackensack, NJ – The Shops at Riverside, North Jersey’s first luxury mall, is getting a face-lift that’s intended to give the 40-year-old shopping center a new lease on life.
The owner of the Hackensack mall, the Simon Property Group, is doubling down on its plans to upgrade the center, announcing today the second and third phases of a project it says will transform The Shops at Riverside.
The second phase of the project, under construction and expected to be completed by November, will add architectural and design elements, including a floating staircase, a central court with a crystal chandelier and a fountain that will create a light-reflecting design feature, and new floor tile throughout the center. Store ceilings will also be raised and skylights will be added throughout.
