A circa-2008 plan of the shopopolis, owned -at the time- by The Westfield Group. Kaufmann's had been "Macy-ated" in 2006. On the periphery of the mall, Max & Erma's and Bravo! Cucina Italiana restaurants opened in 2005 and 2006, respectively.
A rendering of Westfield's proposed "Main Street" BELDEN VILLAGE expansion. The 110,000 square foot lifestyle addition would have included the typical upscale boutiques and bistros. Plans for its construction were abandoned, primarily due to a tanked -early 2000s- economy.
