USA Medical Center is demolishing it and clearing the site for a future development. Once cleared, grass will be laid and an open green space will take its place while plans are decided. No plans have been announced for the site.

From Lagnaippe Weekly News Paper:

"The Shoppes at Midtown mixed-use development announced
Posted by Ron Sivak | Jan 17, 2020 | Latest, News | 0 |

Speculation long swirling around future use of an L-shaped plot of property located in Midtown, next door (and behind) Mobile’s landmark Dew Drop Inn on Old Shell Road, finally spilled over into reality today.

Lewis Golden, commercial broker with Hamilton & Company, planted a sign on site to announce his company’s plans to help fill out a new 8,250-square-foot mixed-use, multimillion-dollar project called The Shoppes at Midtown. Plans are in place are for the site to break ground sometime this year.

“The Shoppes at Midtown is a mixed-use development the includes ground-floor retail and restaurant space with two floors of upscale lofts above,” Golden said. “The project will be pedestrian-oriented with the goal of contributing to the established businesses in the immediate area.”

He went on to say that Mobile-based Crescent Construction & Development is the other major partner on the project that will be in charge of build-out. The development is headed up by company partner and vice-president Stephen Howle.

Expectations are for the sites’ footprint to front Old Shell Road, with new parking spaces synced adjacent to those in front of Dew Drop Inn. Additional car spots will also be available in the rear of the new property.

Per Golden, pre-leasing inquires into tenant space are now available. Additional information can be found by contacting Hamilton & Company and/or visiting their website at: hamiltonpropertyco.com"

Looks like a really cool development.

The festival centre is pathetic, there’s nothing really over there and it’s long past it’s glory days. I remember when there used to be a $1 theater over there in the 90s . I wish they would build Mid rise apartments some jazzy bars and restaurants over there as a redevelopment.

I thought that too. I remember pharmor, a chinese restaurant, and the $1 movie theatre. My parents used to take us to it. I remember Springdale being an actual indoor mall when I was kid. Its a good central location ready for redevelopment.

There was a Circuit City in the Festival Center but it closed in 2009. I have fond memories of Springdale mall also. I distinctly remember seeing "Blue Thunder" there at the Springdale 6 theater in 1983.

I remember the 1 dollar movie place so vidily. You walked in, had an arcade to your right, concessions straight ahead, and the entrance to all the theaters on the right. I also remember getting their "combo" It was a little cardboard tray with a drink, popcorn, and candy.

Also, Discovery Zone (DZ) was there.
