Westfield’s Downtown Plaza may also have a supermarket in its future. Talks with grocers are underway. Both Target and a supermarket will be coming to serve the growing downtown population, as condominiums and apartments are constructed and occupied.
Downtown Plaza has been a weak performer financially. Westfield has been working on its redevelopment. At one time Wal Mart was courted, but some city officials balked. The shape of the mall will now change … and a new theater complex is slated to replace the aging cinemas that are there now.
