Reconstruction of Charlestowne Mall Could Begin Soon

Demolition and reconstruction work on a project meant to redevelop the Charlestowne Mall in St. Charles into The Quad St. Charles could start as early as July, according to the Daily Chronicle. 

The first phase of the redevelopment project will involve the exterior of the mall while a developer is currently working to woo new tenants, according to the article. 

The proposed plans for The Quad St. Charles include:
  • Keeping the building as an enclosed shopping mall
  • Removing the vacant former Sears anchor store
  • Removing and relocating the food court
  • Reconfiguring the front entrances to the mall and movie theater to create a new "front" to the mall building
  • Additional retail/commercial buildings around the mall, including outlot buildings along Main Street (Illinois Route 64)
  • No changes to the detention basins or landscaping along the north property line of the mall
If plans move forward, work this year would include demolition of the former Sears building and the existing food court, site utility work and parking lot construction to regrade portions of the property, according to a city of St. Charles press release. 

Later this year, when the exterior work is completed, construction will begin on interior of the mall, with the goal of completing all work to the mall building by Fall 2015. 

The developers are also working to coordinate parking and access to the anchor stores and theater, which will remain open during the duration of the construction.

So excited for this! Need more stores in the East Side of the river. Randall is so congested. Would be nice to save time instead of driving 15 minutes to go to a store.
