CLEARWATER MALL was built in three stages. Phase One, or The Square, was a strip center in the northwest corner of the site. It was completed in August 1972. Phase Two, the mall proper, was dedicated in November 1973. The third phase, a Northeast Wing anchored by Burdines, is shown in dark gray. It was finished in September 1975 and expanded the mall's GLA to almost 1 million square feet.
