Drivers headed to The Mall in Columbia in coming months will not only find new stores, but better ways to get there, mall officials say.
With the completion of Lord & Taylor in November and the anticipated opening of Nordstrom's on Sept. 17, mall officials are working to add parking spaces and widen an entrance by the end of summer. The mall has about 175 stores and up to 12 million visitors each year, said Jeff Sneddon, the mall's general manager.
Planners will expand the entrance at Windstream Drive, which is off Gov. Warfield Parkway, adding a lane each way. Shoppers will find a new 700-space parking deck. About 7,000 parking slots are available now.
"We are in the midst of a complete renovation," Sneddon said. "Our intent is to make the place as comfortable as possible."
