“Now that the the weather has improved, we have all noticed rapid progress in the renovation of Times Square Mall and the construction of the outlot space (east of Wendy’s). It’s impressive what they have done in the last 30 days,” said Mayor Mary Jane Chesley.
Chesley said the mall owners are to be commended for their commitment to the community.
“It has shown that Sansone has faith in the city of Mt. Vernon in retail development and faith in the workforce that can help with this development,” she said.
Moe’s Southwest Grill will occupy one of the spaces in the building being constructed at the north entrance to the mall. Shaw said two other tenants for that building should be announced within the next 30 days, leaving just one other space to fill. She added the proposed tenants are new to Mt. Vernon retail.
