The future is looking up at the Highland Mall

6 posts in this topic

With the news article just in about a massive plan to revitilize the Highland Mall, I think the malls best is yet to come. The Bass Pro Shop is planning to locate at the mall probally in the new lifestyle center planned where the vacant anchor store is now. The article said the new "Highland Prominade" is to be complete with restuarants, shops and 4 highrise towers. A hotel, office and two condo towers will surround the lifestyle area of the mall. General Growth is also looking into the possibility of loft apartments above the shops and restaurants in the prominade. I look forward to the inside makeover that the mall has badly needed over the last 15 years. The mall make over should be complete by the end of 2009. This will surely revive this part of Austin. I hope the resturants going in will be new to the area though this will make the Highlands Mall Austins dominant mall. This news has been kept low key but expect a big anouncement sometime in mid September.

This is great news. I was in Austin 3 years ago and I remember that mall declining. They must be reviving that part of town. The location is great so I hope this is as grand as they say its going to be.

Thanks! Do you mind if I share this image with another forum? Also, do you by chance have a link to the Statesman article?
