    Staff reporter – Columbus Business First

    Glimcher Realty Trust has put Eastland Mall on the market with an auction scheduled for June. The national Cushman & Wakefield brokerage has set a three-day, online auction for the property. It doesn’t have a formal asking price but the listing said the June 2-4 bidding will start at $9 million.

    What a great opportunity to redevelop Hamilton Road. Tear down that mall and build a really cool town center with apartments, shops restaurants, offices all mixed in 4 to 5 story buildings I see big plans for this site. Hopefully it will attract a developer that has big visions and not just a face lift for the mall that will just delay the inevitable for another couple years.

    Sounds great, but is there a private developer out there with a vision to do something like that? It’s never happened before locally. And it’s not that far from Easton, so mid-to-upscale chain retail is going to be tough. Does the area have the right demographics to support something like this?

    I’m skeptical, but I’d love to be proven wrong.

    Don’t forget a streetcar line that runs west on refugee and north on high.

    I could see something like Easton gateway being built on the outparcels. Also maybe a few restaurants in the mall with patios open to the outside.

    I’ll go ahead and say it: I don’t think this City has the drive or creativity to really fix an area like this.

    We aren’t very motivated to try a lot of new things (at the government level).

    So true. The city should put a tree-lined median along Hamilton Rd. south of I-70 and eliminate the service roads that run parallel to Hamilton Rd. This would bring the businesses closer to the street and slow down traffic a bit. Sidewalks would help, too as there is a minimum level of walk-ability around the mall and down Hamilton and Refugee Roads. How about an I-270 interchange near the Refugee/Hamilton Road intersection since the freeway is right there, anyway? There has been little public investment in this whole area for at least the last 30 years and losing Eastland Mall would be a byproduct of that.

    As a full-fledged downtown supporter, I have no shame in pointing out that the area that I grew up in needs some attention from the city.

    What are you talking about? You mean an area like, say, Northland Mall? or City Center Mall? The city is fixing up a heck of a lot of areas that most cities would never bother to look twice at. Just because they don’t have a comprehensive rehabilitation plan for every single blighted neighborhood doesn’t mean they lack creativity. Come on.

    They’re still working on Northland 10 years later, City Center is moving along, and they have to get to Westland, yet.

    Some time during the day of Friday, August 1, the Glimcher logo and link were taken off the Eastland Mall website. The mall is also no longer listed among Glimcher’s properties on the Glimcher website.

    So who now owns and manages the mall?
