Nanuet Mall Closes

By Hema Easley, The Journal News

The Nanuet Mall closed its door to the public at midnight Tuesday, paving the way for Simon Properties to begin demolishing the county’s oldest mall and replacing it with a new one.

Workers have already fenced off the building and have been shutting off gas, water and electricity. Some asbestos removal will begin in the coming days as will the taking down of the elevator, but actual demolition of the building will not happen until the owners apply for the required permit.

Through the entire process, Macy’s and Sears, whose buildings flank the mall, will remain open for business. 

“They are at a stage where they are starting to disassemble things in the interior,” said Clarkstown Supervisor Alex Gromack. “It is very exciting. ... Everything is moving along very matter-of-factly.”

Simon Properties, which owns the mall, has said it plans to begin construction by March 1 and have the mall open to the public by September or October 2013. The renderings presented to town officials show an L-shaped, open-air mall with a boulevard flanked by single-story stores next to a two-story cinema and fitness center.

Pedestrian walkways and landscaping would flank the stores, and some parking would be available on the boulevard. Simon, the Town of Clarkstown and many Rockland County residents hope the new shopping center will lure customers and help in renewal of the mall, which began to lose customers when the Palisades Center opened in West Nyack in 1998.
