A large-scale redevelopment of Eastland Mall may sound appealing to some, but it’s unclear what role, if any, the city will play in the project.
That could affect the scope of the redevelopment of the mall, which closed Wednesday after Houston-based Boxer Property Management Corp. bought the flailing property, which features four vacant anchor stores.
No formal request for city funding has been submitted, although Boxer is expected to approach the city to discuss the idea. Boxer’s vision for the site at 5471 Central Ave. involves expanding it from a traditional mall to a mix of uses, including a possible residential component, although the project is still in the early planning stages.
Former City Councilman John Lassiter said the city could be asked to provide as much as $20 million to $40 million for the project.
