Poll: Should the Wayne Hills Mall Be Torn Down?

Long-standing shopping center is mostly empty now.

The Wayne Hills Mall is mostly empty.

For years, stores have left the once busy shopping center until now only Burlington Coat Factory, , and a few others remain. Most of the mall is closed off. The parking lot is often mostly empty.

Township officials have discussed developing the property, but the project has never gotten off the ground.

What should happen to the mall? Should it be torn down? Should a new mall be constructed? Should the township purchase the land and build a new town hall? What are your favorite memories of the mall?

Let us know by posting in the comments below or voting in the poll.

Very nice owners at WH Mall. Maybe the town ( not the officals ) should listen to what they propose.

Why doesn't the town look at this property as an undervalued or underused piece of property? My point is this......if the property was redeveloped with stores, eateries, movies, possibly apartments or offices above the retail, it would be assessed at a greater value and thus generate more tax dollars for the town. However, I guess the town has no legal avenue to pursue that angle.

The Wayne Hills Mall site would be perfect for that sports dome. But then DT Allen wouldn't have any mountain to move and soil to "mine", so they're probably not interested.

It's private property but zoning should be allowed for other uses especially apartments/condos to allow for 20-30 somethings to stay in the area as opposed to relegated to their "parents' basements". Many studies show that this type of living areas do not add substantially to school populate as many families would not move to such smaller locations. A county planning survey held a few years ago showed overwhelmingly too that this would be welcomed. Here's an example of a type of place that would benefit many http://www.mainstliving.com/
