Construction Continues on Springfield Town Center

Site plan depicts new lay out of the mall redevelopment.

The redevelopment of the Springfield Mall is currently progressing on schedule according to Mara Ooguin, a spokesperson for what will soon be the Springfield Town Center.

The demolition of the Springfield Mall began Nov. 26. All of the mall's stores closed back in July except for Macy's, JCPenney and Target.

The mall's redevelopment and transformation into what will be an upscale town center is part of a three-year effort between the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors, Vornado Realty Trust, who owns the mall, and a handful of community organizations in the Springfield area.

A site plan for the redevelopment was recently added to the Springfield Town Center website, but Ooguin said at the moment, they don't have a tenant line up for the location. Included in the lay out is a movie theatre, which will be a new addition.

The new town center is set to open in the fall of 2014.

I would love to see a G-Street fabrics in one of the stores. G-Street fabrics also offers sewing lessons. There is a Michael's craft store nearby but they dont sell fabrics. Back in the 70"s Springfield Mall had two fabric stores. The only fabric store moved away several years ago (Joanns fabric in burke).

the images look pretty lame...like a re-imagined crappy concrete 70s mall. the new center at Merrifield is decent because there's are store front streets, ample parking, and a kick-a_s movie theatre with a very large green outdoor area. Do something cool like add a botanical garden, or a museum, a massive climbing wall, ice rink, moving walkway to the other nearby retail plazas, make it way cooler than Tysons - and it might have a chance of success.
