Slideshow: Southridge Mall Renovation Plans Posted for Review
Greendale Planning Commission has recommended approval of building permits for $52 million mall renovation.
The Greendale Planning Commission has recommended the Village Board approve building permits that are part of the $52 million dollar renovation planned by Southridge Mall owners Simon Property Group.
Graycor Construction presented information to commissioners Wednesday night about renovating existing mall entrances, adding parking lot enhancements and interior work that includes new finishes.
While the Planning Commission recommended approval, members also told mall officials they had some concerns. Some of the things that still need work are:
- Spruce up the loading dock near the food court. Graycor agreed to work with village staff to do that.
- Graphics and advertising signs on Entrance 1 are too big (see page 4). Commissioners were not fond of having advertising seen from 200 feet outside of the mall, especially since that was a concern they had also expressed with Macy's. They did agree graphics would be acceptable and set size limits for letters.
Landscape plans have been tabled for further review.
