I swear that place is on its way to becoming the next Laurel mall or Landover mall. It has more abandoned stores than active ones. The food court only has one place serving food now and the movie theater on the top floor has been long gone. Oh yeah and Gold's gym moved out awhile awhile ago now. This mall is doomed and there's not much keeping it alive. Is there any other malls in this area that's like this? I'm surprised Iverson mall is still in business, but then again its more of a neighborhood mall and its ghetto...

Iverson Mall is surviving because of marketing. They know their clientele. They aren't in to upscale items, they are a place to buy affordable things, which is why it fits the area that it is in. City Place is not really the same. Like you said, it's a horrible place. It doesn't fit the area or the stores around it. I'm not even sure if they have a real plan for it. I can definitely see it being shut down. It just doesn't make sense to have an indoor mall in the middle of outdoor retail, but that's just my opinion.

I remember when it used to thrive, before all the outdoor retail and the Majestic were built.

CityPlace started out with good stores. I went there for the discount hosiery place, but when that was gone, I stopped using CityPlace. There were just stores selling junk that was not attractive to a middle or upper income professional. I'm sorry, because it seemed like a great way to use the space.

Isn't this mall scheduled to be redeveloped? I remember reading about that a couple of years ago? That may be why there are not a lot of stores since they have to let the leases lapse (or buy them out) before they can move forward with the plan. Has that changed?

What do you expect when everything around it is brand new?

I know that but that mall isnt even THAT old, probably built in the 80's. Seems like it was built for nothing but then again it did well for the 20-30 years it was active.
