Built in 1973, Metrocenter totals 1.3 million square feet and is home to more than 125 retailers and department stores, including Dillard’s, Macy’s, Sears and Harkins Theatres. Enhanced by a $32 million renovation in 2007, the mall features revitalized common spaces, food court, security systems, children’s area and a new community room. In January 2012, the mall was purchased by New York-based Carlyle Development Group (CDG), an expert in repositioning under-valued real estate assets. CDG is now actively stabilizing and marketing the mall to new vendors and uses, with a goal of transforming the Phoenix retail landmark into a multi-faceted, mixed-use environment for shopping, dining and family entertainment.
