     Interesting Features
    Its a big mall with a 16 screen theatre. It also has a masoleum in the parking lot, which is odd. http://larryfelton...aves/p1010277.html

     History
    Thanks to Mr. T(oe knee)

    Avondale Mall, formerly named Columbia Mall, was one of the earliest
    enclosed malls in the Atlanta area. It was renamed Avondale Mall in
    an attempt to stave off it's inevitable economic decline by
    associating it with nearby stable and upscale Avondale Estates.

    Update (Seicer): "Avondale Mall to close

    The 37-year-old Avondale Mall is calling it quits and will close on Dec. 31. Word of the closure comes five months after owners, Thomas Enterprises, said it had no plans to shut it down. The company cited the recent economic downturn for its decision to pull the plug on the mall.

    The company purchased the property in 1999 for $3.5 million. Estimates are that it would cost 10 times that amount to redevelop it.

    During its heyday, the 276,000-square-foot mall at the corner of Columbia and Memorial drives was one of Atlanta's premier shopping spots, second only to Lenox Square. Back then, it was anchored by Macy's (formerly Davidson's department store) and Sears.

    Over the years, its tenant base dwindled from 60 stores to nine. The mall enjoyed a small rebirth in the 1990s when the 16-screen Avondale Cinema opened there, but it went bankrupt and closed last year."
