Mall history

Plans were first announced in June 1994. The original mall was intended to have Macy's, which had signed a letter of interest.[4]

The 1,100,000-square-foot (100,000 m2) structure is adjacent to the General Douglas MacArthur Memorial. It is anchored by Nordstrom and Dillard's department stores, with space for a third major anchor tenant. There are 400,000 square feet (37,000 m2) of mall tenant shops and 100,000 square feet (9,300 m2) of food and entertainment offerings, including the Regal MacArthur 18 movie theater.

The 140-store mall opened in March 12, 1999, with the region's first Nordstrom department store and up to 70 new-to-market stores.

MacArthur on Ice

Every winter since 2005, MacArthur Center has operated a 7,200-square-foot (670 m2) ice skating rink on the property.[5]

Parental Policy

Since October 19, 2009, MacArthur Center is one of the few malls in Virginia and the one of three in the Taubman Company to implement a Parental Escort Policy that will ban teens under 18 without a 21+ year old escort daily after 5 p.m. This was met with a protesting opposition just before the rule went into effect.[6]

  • Nordstrom (166,000-square-foot (15,400 m2))
