Park Place was originally dedicated as Park Mall in May 1975, but was renovated beginning in 1998 and renamed Park Place the following year. The mall is named after Sears Park, which was previously located at the same site and included the Sears store, the current mall’s major anchor (the park’s presently limited to its extreme southern part). The electric substation on the premises is named Sears Substation because it was there a decade before the mall was built. From 1970 to 1996 the owner was the mall’s original developer, Joseph Kivel.
The 1,100,000-square-foot (100,000 m2), $100 million renovation, completed in 2001, was recognized that year as a Reader's Pick for Best Contemporary Architecture in Tucson Weekly's Best of Tucson awards.
The mall features three anchor stores, a food court, a Southwest-themed children's play area, and a cineplex with 20 screens. A number of full-service restaurants are also located on site.
