McAllen’s La Plaza Mall is the premier shopping destination of the Rio Grande Valley. La Plaza Mall features 1.2 million square feet of upscale and mainstream retail space with over 150 specialty retailers and a newly two-level parking deck, adding approximately 740 spaces to the mall.
By fall 2017, Rio Grande Valley residents and visitors will also be able to experience a 245,000 square foot expansion wing that will accommodate up to 50 new specialty stores, four junior anchors and an exciting dining plaza with six first-to-market restaurants that will be prominently featured facing Interstate 2 with a grand outdoor terrace for our patrons to enjoy dinner al fresco.
Simon, La Plaza Mall’s real estate company, will also upgrade the interior and exterior of the existing mall with new mall entrances, flooring, LED lighting, skylights, upgraded restrooms, luxury seating and landscaping to completely enhance the look and feel of the property.
Also part of the expansion is a second two-level parking deck will be built to by JC Penney, Dillard’s and serve 1,260 parking spaces.
“La Plaza Mall is a highly productive mall and demand for space is significant,” said David Contis, President of Simon’s mall division. “Simon is committed to the McAllen market, and we know that this expansion will bring in highly-sought, high-quality retailers and restaurants unlike anything else available in the area.”
