Take A Look At Phoenix Paradise Valley Mall Redevelopment Plans
Demolition will soon begin at Paradise Valley Mall in Phoenix after the City Council approved a redevelopment plan Wednesday.
The project calls for a major transformation on the 92-acre site at Cactus Road and Tatum Boulevard. Up to 2,500 multi-family housing that could reach up to 10 stories, along with a mix of restaurants, retail shops, a grocery store, offices and self-storage.
As KJZZ reported last November, Paradise Valley Mall owner Macerich is working with Red Development to turn the indoor mall into an outdoor destination with green space and trails throughout the project.
Councilwoman Debra Stark, who represents District 3 where the mall is located, said in a statement: “PV Mall holds many memories and a sense of nostalgia for our residents. I am excited that the mall will be part of the fabric of the community for generations to come.”
Construction and partial demolition are expected to start in the next few months. The Costco, parking garage and the city’s library branch will remain.
“As many malls across the country are suffering with vacant storefronts, it is critical to reimagine traditional malls as destinations for more than just shopping,” Mayor Kate Gallego said in a statement. “The redevelopment of Paradise Valley Mall will provide economic stabilization, not just to the immediate area but to the surrounding neighborhoods as well.”
