It does include the theater. If you read the article, it sounds like they believe the mall to be viable as a mall. I don't believe it will be closed down.

Some suggestion that there is room to use space more constructively. There is plenty of wasted parking. A hotel and restaurant are planned for two pads that aren't owned by CBL. The hotel is just starting construction.

Who thinks liberty will buy it as an "investment"? It is certainly good property in relationship to campus... Albeit with a RR between it.

That's a no brainer
Further I predict this will be the start of the push for the co-owned Civic Center.
I'd love to see it restart the talks about Amtrak service East and West

I don't believe it's viable, so I really hope this isn't the case. I really hope that the university concentrates on suring up the resident program for the future in a way that allows it to stand on its own should the online program experience strong headwinds at some point in the next 10-15 years.

LU wants a Civic Center almost as bad as they want to go FBS

It would have to be over. They can buy 'the space' from the railroad

Someone was throwing around a rumor at work yesterday that Macy's is closing.

Now Macy's is closing a bunch of stores, but I don't know that the Lynchburg location is one of them.

In high school, I had a few friends that worked at Auntie Anne's. They would always bring in the leftovers from the night before whenever the closed the store. Free pretzels in the morning? Yes. Yes please.

There is no Auntie Anne's in Lynchburg. The nearest one is in Roanoke.

JLFJR says that the university has no plans to buy the mall. He thinks someone needs to provide major updates to it. My guess? Either someone will do some major upgrades, or it falls apart and LU picks it up in a fire sale. Fan the flames.

Lynchburg DOES need a good mall. I doubt that River Ridge will be that mall.

In related news: The first official announcement that I know of that Liberty will be shutting down the offices at RR.
