When Collin Creek Mall was built in 1981, it was the only mall in Collin County. Now, Centurion American Development Group is planning a $1 billion redevelopment that includes extensive retail, restaurant and entertainment sites as well as single and multi-family housing, hotel with event space, 8.9 acres of park and open space and a signature water feature.
Thousands of former shoppers, employees and friends of the legendary center have become nostalgic regarding the past of Collin Creek Mall, and the development team at Centurion American wants to offer those fans the opportunity to say goodbye to this beloved community destination while celebrating the area’s potential for growth and improvement.
“Our vision is to build something really special for the community, a central gathering point that connects east and west Plano,” says Centurion American President and CEO Mehrdad Moayedi, who is spearheading the redevelopment. “We’ve been working hard to design a pedestrian-friendly, lifestyle project that will be a value-add to the area and give life back to this side of town.”
The free, family-friendly party will be held in the center court of Collin Creek Mall, and will feature live entertainment from the 1980s cover band, the M80s, food, photo opportunities and more. Guests wishing to attend the party are asked to RSVP at CCMKickoff2019.com by July 17.
As a part of the Building the Future party, Moayedi and his team will present a first look at the updated plans, map and branding for the new development on the Collin Creek site.
Collin Creek Mall will close to the public on Wednesday, July 31, so that construction can begin in August. Completion of Phase I is tentatively scheduled for late 2021.
