LATHAM CIRCLE MALL was given a wrecking ball renovation in early 2013. Lowe's was left standing, along with the north (cinema) section. Stores in the new & improved SHOPPES AT LATHAM CIRCLE began opening in mid-2015. Burlington (Coat Factory), who had operated in the mall between 1993 and 2012, did an encore. The shiny new store seen above began business in early 2016.

In the original redevelopment plan, J.C. Penney and the adjacent cinema section were to be worked into the new power plaza. Alas, Penney's closed. Its building, and the cinema, were knocked down. An east-facing store strip (in light gray) was built. A final segment (in dark gray) is in the planning stages. When completed, it will contain three big box stores.
