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.
