Local Hispanic-Themed Mall Faces Foreclosure - News Story - WSOC Charlotte

Maybe Eastland Mall isnt saved after all. Not a good sign for the Carrowinds potential redevelopment project we are discussing in the other thread.

That is too bad. I went there a couple times and also had my son's birthday party there. I hope it survives.
It is a good place for the kids to play indoors when the weather isn't nice.

I went there a few weeks ago. It was a good concept, except most stores look like storage units rather then an actual store. It seems like they are going for the "market" type of look, when it looks like people are selling stuff out of a storage unit. The Black & Decker store is really good though.

Personally - I LOVE Plaza Fiesta! I just wish it wasn't geared toward one type of people, though. I appreciate the culture of it, but I think they should have made it more "everyone friendly" (for lack of a better term). But I love their food court, I love the play area, and some of the stores are okay, but they need more "anchors" - bigger stores like Hamricks (sp?) and maybe a big restaurant. I hope it doesn't go under. It would be such a shame.

I wish it was more "multi-cultural" themed. Make it a place where theres things from all different countries. I think they were banking on the heavily prominent Spanish population.

Boxer Property, which plans to reopen Eastland Mall in Charlotte as a Hispanic-themed mall, has managed Plaza Fiesta for over a year. In June Boxer Property paid $2 million for the main section of Eastland Mall. They didn't buy the four anchor store buildings.

When I first moved here it did cater to everybody but 90% of the stores were vacant. Someone was trying another angle but apparently it did not work. Was it the idea, the economy or a bit of both ? Who knows...

This has more to do with the developing company than the actual mall.
Quote:
laza Fiesta's developer, CCD Charlotte, defaulted on its loan. Lender BB&T is foreclosing on the property and a judge appointed a receiver, CB Richard Ellis, to act as the mall's owner until it is sold.

The property manager, Boxer Properties, sent the mall's businesses a memo stating that there are "no plans to close" the mall.
The same thing recently happened to EpiCenter in uptown Charlotte. General Growth Properties Inc. which owns Carolina Place Mall has also faced financial troubles and declared bankruptcy. Both have remained open and are operating on a normal level.

Default Looking Bleak for Plaza Fiesta Once Again.

First Plaza Fiesta tenants unnerved by new lease:

and now Hamrick's was told to leave Plaza Fiesta:

I received notification this morning that Hamrick's was closing early January and Everthing must go!
