CLEARWATER, FLORIDA - The mall is not what it used to be. Most of today's fastest-growing retail chains want to be free standing, or part of a larger shopping center. Obsolete malls are being leveled and replaced with Power Centers which house big-box retailers, discount and home improvement super centers, along with a myriad of other key supporting tenants. Consumers are attracted to the convenience that Power Centers offer.
"The redevelopment of the old Clearwater Mall allowed The Sembler Company to create this shopping experience at a prime location in Pinellas County," said John McCaugherty, President, Hawkins Construction, Inc. Hawkins completed over 265,000 square feet of retail construction at Clearwater Mall, averaging 180 calendar days from building pad to tenant delivery.
