What do you do with a dead mall? South African developer Neil Bernstein has big plans for Devland City, his proposed redevelopment of decaying Randall Park Mall, which at one point was the largest mall in the country. Bernstein wants to turn the mall site into a mixed-use facility focused on trade and manufacturing. The former Sony Theatre would turn into the World Trade Center – a spot for global commerce & trade assistance and trade shows. The site would also include a Fifty States Business Showcase, Manufacturing Enterprise Zone, Pick and Rack and an adaptive re-use of the former Holiday Inn.
Bernstein hopes his plan will become a national blueprint for mall re-use.
