"If we build it, they will come," said Katie Ferris, the marketing director for River Ridge Mall. "It's time for us to renovate River Ridge. To give it a refresh and make it more modern, to attract, more store, more dining, more entertainment."
Construction on the first part of the mall begins on Tuesday, July 30, 2019, and will include a total makeover of what they are calling "The Great Space" near Belk.
There will be new flooring, new soft seating, a giant fireplace and water features.
In an area they are calling "Center Court," which will be finished by the holidays, they will be adding kiosks for food, beverages and an amphitheater.
"We have already got bands and different events booked for that amphitheater here in center court," said Farris.
