History

Londonderry Mall opened in 1972 with 85 stores and services.

The mall underwent its first renovation in the late 1980s, transforming the mall from a simple, street-themed mall to a more open shopping environment with added skylights and enhanced lighting. The mall expanded to 150 stores and services, and increasing popularity. [1]

In late 2013, the relocation and closing of many major tenants and small stores left the mall with many unoccupied stores.

In September 2014, Londonderry Mall publicly announced a renovation and remerchandising project. Some large features will be:

  • Relocation of stores within the mall, and opening of many new stores
  • Relocation of the food court to the west side of the mall with exterior access
  • Renovation of all mall common areas with replacement of all elevators and escalators.

This renovation is being designed by MMC Architects and GH+A Design.

Renovation

On September 18, 2014, Londonderry Mall announced that it will be undergoing a $130 million renovation. The renovation is expected to be complete in 2017.[2]
