Eastwood Mall Renovation
This architectural rendering illustrates the main entrance to Eastwood Mall, including a 10 foot by 21 foot video screen The northeast entrance to the mall will include store spaces with direct access to the parking area.
The constantly-evolving Eastwood Mall Complex is changing again. A multi-million dollar project is underway that will enhance the function and aesthetics of this super-regional shopping complex in Niles, Ohio. Major upgrades to the interior and exterior of the mall will take place through the rest of the summer and be completed in October, just before the start of the holiday shopping season.
Perhaps the most visible portion of the project will be the complete rebuilding of the main entrance. The updated architectural design will incorporate a large (10’ x 21’) LED video screen that will display both static images and full motion video, advertising mall merchants and events. This video installation is being provided by Canfield, Ohio-based LED3.
The northeast entrance to the mall, near Target and JCPenney, will be rebuilt to include store spaces that have direct access to the parking field as well as the mall concourse. This will accommodate shops and restaurants that appeal to “single destination” guests.
Repaving of the parking areas, along with power-washing and tuck-pointing of the main mall building are now underway. New landscaping will be installed in September and October. Inside the mall, new carpeting will be installed throughout the common areas. Energy-efficient LED lighting systems will significantly brighten the concourses and court areas.
This last major renovation of Eastwood Mall took place in 2006. The current refurbishing is in keeping with a well-established philosophy of the mall’s parent company, Cafaro, of constantly refreshing the look and feel its shopping centers. “We want to keep the atmosphere clean, modern and appealing to both our merchants and guests” said Co-President Anthony Cafaro, Jr. “We know that Eastwood looks good already but we want stay ahead of the curve.”
The renovation is just the latest in a series of new additions to the Eastwood Mall Complex. A new Hampton Inn & Suites is scheduled to open in early September. Major construction of the Eastwood Event Centre is about to commence. This state-of-the-art facility is designed for business meetings, conferences, exhibitions and social events. It will accommodate up to 1,000 guests for formal banquet seating. The Eastwood Event Centre will be hosting its first guests by mid-2017.
The Eastwood Mall Complex is located at 5555 Youngstown-Warren Road, in Niles, Ohio. It is one of America’s largest shopping complexes, with more than 200 department stores, specialty shops, restaurants, hotels and entertainment options. The Eastwood Mall Complex is owned and managed in association with Cafaro-affiliated companies, based in Niles, Ohio.
