Westgate Mall a possible redevelopment site


The north corridor is filled with sunlight, but there's not a customer, or business, in sight.



Redevelopment pitched for Westgate Mall; current tenants say they're left behind.  (Madison.com, 6/25/2016)

First of all, this statement -- Westgate Mall was built in the 1950s and later remodeled -- is misleading, at best.

Westgate Mall Shopping Center, originally an 'open-air' as opposed to enclosed facility, opened in 1960 on what was then the far-west side of Madison.

And here's an example of understatment from Terry Gulesserian, owner of Terry’s Westgate Barbers:  “It was pretty booked before, and now we don’t have much here at all.”

Yup, it's been approaching zero for the last decade, at least.
