By Eliza Theiss, Associate Editor As stated in The Tennessean, if the site plan is approved, Crescent Bellevue will be part of the more than $100 million redevelopment of the defunct Bellevue Center mall, currently under the ownership of Oak Brook, Ill.-based Retail Properties of America, Inc. (RPAI). The redevelopment of the one-million-square-foot mall is helmed by a joint venture between RPAI and Charlotte-based Crosland Southeast.

The project aims to create a retail-driven, walkable, mixed-use development comprising 600,000 square feet of retail, restaurant and entertainment space, 150,000 square feet of medical/professional office space, around 300 apartment units and a hotel. According to News Channel 5, the project has two-year development timeline, with a projected kick-off date in fall 2015. Bellevue Mall closed its doors several years ago. The only operational tenant is a Sears store, which is currently in negotiations to keep its location or move to a new structure onsite.
