A site plan from late 1977 depicts the double-decked, 580,000 square foot shopping center. In its original incarnation, it was anchored by Sanger-Harris and Montgomery Ward...with a 6-plex movie house in the southwestern hinterlands.

The renowned HOK (Hellmuth, Obata & Kassabaum) firm designed the original HULEN MALL. A few of their contemporary projects would have been Houston's GALLERIA POST OAK (1970), the DFW (Dallas-Fort Worth) Airport Terminal (1973) and Washington, DC's National Air & Space Museum (1976).
