The former Lincoln Mall in Matteson now resembles a post-apocalyptic scene, but village officials envision the development of a massive mixed-use complex on the 60-acre site.

Crews began demolishing the Carson’s department store, the last remaining property on the grounds, according to the Daily Southtown. The store closed in March.

Part of the public-private redevelopment plan includes dividing the property into multiple lots, with 600 units of housing, in addition to retail and office components, recreational facilities and a central open area, according to the report.

Chicago real estate brokerage The Lord Companies is marketing the property and construction is estimated to cost $250 million.

Lincoln Mall opened in 1973, and thrived for years. But unable to keep up with the shifting retail landscape, stores began closing in 2015. [Chicago Tribune] — Jacqueline Flynn
