CBL & Associates Properties to Redevelop Four Macy’s Locations in its Portfolio
CHATTANOOGA, TENN. — CBL & Associates Properties Inc. plans to redevelop four Macy’s anchor locations in its portfolio that will close at the end of March. The Macy’s stores were announced to be closing by Macy’s last week. The four locations include Jefferson Mall in Louisville, Ky.; Layton Hills Mall in Layton, Utah; Parkdale Mall in Beaumont, Texas; and Eastland Mall in Bloomington, Ill. CBL will replace the Macy’s at Layton Hills Mall with a new anchor retailer, which will open its new store by the end of the year. Macy’s Inc. currently owns the other three locations and will sell them to CBL for a total of $5 million. In addition to these four locations, Macy’s will close its store at River Ridge Mall in Lynchburg, Va., in which CBL holds a minority interest. The majority owner of the mall will handle the acquisition and redevelopment of this store.
