Tennessee-based CBL Properties, owner of the mall, said Wednesday that the demolition of a two story, 144,000-square-foot building, which for years was home to a Boston Store, will resume later this month to make way for the construction of a one-story, 85,000-square-foot Von Maur store.
Demolition work had started earlier this year but was halted due to COVID-19. In November, CBL filed for bankruptcy protection so it could recapitalize and restructure parts of its debt
