Re: El Con Mall was purchased for $81.7 million by a group fronted by St. Louis Rams owner Stanley Kroenke.
Hope they don’t change the marquee. Saw that my whole life, and it’s still my favorite mall — especially when they had a teenage hangout called the Gold Mine where you could meet new friends and didn’t have to worry about gang signs and fights.

Hope they keep adding stores and making it a super place to shop again. I would rather go there to shop than Tucson Mall or Park Place. Used to work in that place when Steinfeld’s was there.

I’d want to be the seller (not the buyer). The NIMBYs near El Con deserve the poverty they are creating.

$80 million for that dump?! LOL. Out-of-towners must have bought it sight unseen! Oh well, if you’re that rich, you deserve to get ripped off!
I say tear it down and put in an outlet mall.
I can see it being torn down and him doing something else with it. I would, and that was overpriced considering the businesses that are there. Park Place mall is a lot better. Tucson Mall beats that one.

Looking forward to improvements!
Bring back Levy’s!

Demolish it now ...
