— Improvement work has started on the side of Brookfield Square
Mall anchored by Sears to add additional stores and restaurants
and to update the façade.
The project will add approximately 20,000 square feet of space,
including three new restaurants, Jason’s Deli, Blackfinn
Ameripub and Mooyah Burger, Fries and Shakes. Each of the
restaurants will have its own exterior entrance. Other new
stores will be announced later, according to property owner CBL
& Associates Properties.
Work will begin in the mall’s interior with exterior
construction likely to start in March, according to the
“We are very excited to continue to deliver to our shoppers the
best that dining and retail has to offer,” says Scott Oleson,
general manager of Brookfield Square Mall, in a statement. “We
are committed to reinvesting in our center and the community,
and this expansion underscores our focus.”
Phase one of the project is slated for completion by the end of
2015 and is projected to create more than 300 jobs including
construction, skilled trades and service employees.
The second phase of the work on Brookfield Square Mall will
include an expansion of about 50,000 square feet onto Boston
Store and will include a variety of stores and restaurants.
In June 2014, the Brookfield Common Council voted to approve the
allocation of $7 million from the city’s tax incremental
district No. 3 to be used for Brookfield Square expansions.
The menu for new restaurant Blackfinn Ameripub includes
flatbreads, pastas, burgers and sandwiches. Jason’s Deli serves
more natural ingredients as part of its deli menu, such as
specialty sandwiches and wraps, seasonal soups and a salad bar.
