  1. Sears exists more as a real estate holding company that happens to have a lot of empty Sears and Kmart stores occupying the real estate. I don't think they are really that interested in operating retail and much as unloading the real estate. At some point the Midtown location will be sold for some other use.
  2. Stop trying to derail the thread. Keep it on topic.
  3. News like this gets me a lot more excited about this project.
  4. I always liked Town & Country mall. It was my "go to" mall for a long time, mainly because it was never very crowded and it was quick to get in and out. They had an Abercrmobie & Fitch, on the south axis I think, back when it was an outdoor equipment store.
  5. That is true. They were acquired by Chemical Bank. If that hadn't happened though I suspect their fate would have been the same as the others. Someone correct me if I'm wrong on this, but I think that Bank of the Southwest, First City and TCB ended up as part of today's Chase Bank, InterFirst and Republic ended up within Bank of America, and Allied part of Wells Fargo.
  6. Thank you both. I thought the original Foley's structure was demolished.
  7. Visible Changes has been there as far back as I can remember, although it used to be in a different location, across the main concourse from the little shop that sold corn-dogs and lemonade. What was originally on the far west (Gessner) end of the mall (between Sears and Montgomery Wards)?
  8. Note duplicate topics merged
  9. Plus the lovely West Building in the background!
  10. Maybe this can develop into downtown's Parking District North.
  11. You are probably right. Second-tier malls like this are a dying breed. I don't know about potential for mixed use, but I could picture a large apartment complex on the site.
  12. Interesting. Originally they were catty-corner on the First City Tower block.
  13. This is just crap. Why are they giving a pretentious name like "One Market Square" to a freakin' parking garage? Is this really the best they can come up with for what could be one of the best locations downtown?
