MOONBEAM 228 • SHOPPING CENTER BUSINESS • May 2018 taken possession of three former anchor store buildings. The county will relocate its administrative services as well as the county courthouse to space previously oc- cupied by Sears, Dillard's and Burlington Coat Factory. In a project known as Richland Re- naissance, the County is moving forward with its $144 million redevelopment plan, which includes moving services out of downtown Columbia to areas that are more accessible by residents. Richland County is acquiring a total of 600,000 square feet of space at Columbia Place Mall. With such a captive audience, Maksin says that law offices are express- ing great interest in leasing space there. "It's a clear example of a symbiotic relationship between the alternative use of the malls and the potential new tenant base that might not have considered being in the mall but now would," Maksin says. Other overall uses MCI is exploring include urgent care centers, community colleges, trampoline centers or even con- versions to warehouse facilities. The former Belk department store at West Oaks Mall in Orlando is home to a call center for Bed Bath & Beyond; MCI is evaluating the conversion of the remainder of the building into several office spaces.
