Between 1998 and 2002, NORTH EAST MALL was given a major makeover. Two anchor stores were knocked down and replaced, two more were built and a new wing (in gray) extended southward. Moreover, Foley's was snatched from NORTH HILLS MALL and four parking garages were constructed. When the construction dust settled, NORTH EAST MALL encompassed over 1.7 million leasable square feet.
