Westbury mall redevelopment begins

April 16, 2018 01:36PM

The chairman of the China-based Lesso Group officially started the redevelopment of the mall formerly known as the Mall at The Source when he took a sledgehammer to the building his company bought in May 2017 for $92 million. By the multi-million dollar project’s end, the site will become a 723,326-square-foot home furnishings and decor retail center designed by Perkins Eastman. It’ll also include new restaurants, community centers and shared co-working space for interior designers. Newmark Knight Frank will handle its leasing. The demolition will be done by Turner Construction. [LIBN]
