Re-imagining the Eastfield Mall as a Mixed-Use Property

Like many malls in the region, the Eastfield Mall has lost big anchor stores like Macy’s, JC Penny and Sears in recent years. The shuttering of major department stores means empty storefronts and leaves shoppers wondering what’s to become of the retail space. The owners of the Eastfield Mall have plans to turn the mall into a mixed-use property featuring entertainment, retail stores, and residential areas. Carolee McGrath sat down with Mountain Development’s Chuck Breidnbach and mall property manager Dave Thompson to learn more about the plans.
