Shoppers in Nashville are so happy to hear that both The Mall at Green Hills and Cool Springs Galleria will expand soon. They both announced plans for expansion recently, which means more stores for the top shopping destinations.
Cool Springs Galleria Expansion
Approval was recently granted to Cool Springs Galleria to add nearly 74,000 square feet to the current mall. This will include unattached retail buildings and construction is expected to start in early 2014.
After the initial phase has been completed, another 53,000 square feet will be added with three stand-alone buildings. These are expected to be added over the summer of 2014.
The final phase of this project will add another 10,000 square feet to the mall near Macy's. However, this final phase has yet to receive a timeline.
The Mall at Green Hills Expansion
Green Hills expects to receive approval for an expansion of 125,000 square feet very soon, as well. The expansion will include both retail space and a parking garage. It will involve large changes to the Dillard's building, which will cause the store to shut down during construction. However, when it reopens, it will be nearly 180,000 square feet and the old space will be taken up by new retailers.
The parking garage is expected to be located off Cleghorn Avenue and will provide sidewalk with better walkability, as well. This part of the project will also help to connect the neighborhood to the mall. This proposal will go up for vote on November 12th and many expect it to be approved.
Both of these expansions will attract more stores to the malls. Nashville residents using both of these malls on a regular basis will soon be able to enjoy more stores and a better shopping experience.
