Columbus' WESTLAND was officially dedicated in August of 1969. The existing Lazarus was joined by new Penney's and Sears anchors. The open-air mall included a large Woolworth 5 & 10.


This circa-1984 physical layout shows the newly-enclosed shopping center and its enlarged Lazarus. At this time, the mall spanned 860,000 leasable square feet and housed over forty stores and services. Its vast parking lot could contain 5,000 autos.
