By the dawn of the 21st century, McFARLAND MALL had lost its stride. A demalling was proposed in 2011. By mid-2017, only a Cheddar's Casual Cafe (make that Cheddar's Scratch Kitchen) had been built. The latest news indicates that work on a long-delayed ENCORE TUSCALOOSA power center could be underway by mid-2017. If it is built as shown in this diagram, it will encompass around 255,800 leasable square feet.
