Magnolia Park Town Center is a shopping center in Greenville, South Carolina currently under construction. The shopping center will be mixed-use.
The mixed-use development replaced the Greenville Mall which was built in 1978. It originally included JBWhite and Montgomery Ward. In 1995, the mall was renovated and expanded, adding higher-end stores such as Parisian, Drexel Heritage, Williams-Sonoma, Harold's and others. JBWhite was acquired by Dillard's, Parisian was converted into a Proffitt's and the mall lost nearly all of its tenants by the early 2000s.
The development was proposed in 2006, the original size was supposed to be over 1,300,000 sq ft (120,000 m2) including Retail, Office, Residential, Hotel, and a theater. The site-plan has been changed multiple times since 2006 to bring it down to 900,000 sq ft (84,000 m2).
The current site plan will include:
- Retail 650,000 sq ft (60,000 m2).
- Office 100,000 sq ft (9,300 m2).
- Hotel 70,000 sq ft (6,500 m2).
- Theater 80,000 sq. ft. (existing)
