In said plan, the old Gottschalks, vacant for over 6 years, is transformed into the Marketplace, an "artisan food community" housing over twelve restaurants. It opens onto an outdoor Events Plaza, which lies between the Marketplace and existing megalex cinema.

The renovation of MANCHESTER CENTER got underway in the fall of 2016. When construction dust settles, this is how the complex will be configured. It encompasses 1,023,800 leasable square feet. New tenants could include big box stores, such as Marshalls and Ross Dress For Less.
