By the turn of the century, McFARLAND MALL was on life support. A demalling was proposed, with a vacant Dillard's being razed in early 2014. The East Wing was also bulldozed. Work on a new ENCORE TUSCALOOSA power center soon stalled out. Only a Cheddar's Casual Cafe (make that Cheddar's Scratch Kitchen) was built. When ENCORE is completed, it could be configured as shown above. Existing structures are surrounded in blue.
