A (possible) future site plan for CANTON CENTRE. J.C. Penney and WalMart have made it clear that they are there to stay, no matter what kind of wrecking ball renovation might be done to the mall. The drawing above depicts a "best case scenario" for present and future redevelopment. Sections indicated in dark gray show the aforementioned mini-power center that was built in 2010.
