A lifestyle addition, known as THE VILLAGE, was to be anchored by the Showcase Cinemas 12 seen in the right of this rendering. The project was abandoned when the owners of the mall defaulted on their upside down mortgage in late 2009.

Here we see a tentative circa-2010 layout of how the south end of the mall would have been situated had THE VILLAGE expansion been carried out. Alas, the remodeling plan would be drastically altered.
In a for real circa-2013 layout, we see the mall's reconfigured south end. On the northeast end of the complex, a new Jo-Ann Fabrics has taken out five store spaces. Moreover, Marshalls has moved into an outparcel store vacated by A.J. Wright. The old Marshalls has been retenanted by C.W. Price (which would close in 2015 and be replaced by Fallas).
