CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa — Local Realtor Scott Byers and developer John Frew are joining forces to transform the long-beleaguered, half-empty Westdale Mall with a plan to buy it, demolish most of it and build a commercial/residential village around the existing anchor stores.
Under the proposal, Byers and a group of local investors will buy the property and lease the land to Frew, who will lead what he said on Friday would be a $90 million redevelopment effort. Byers, a Realtor at Gibbs Lamb Drown Commercial in Cedar Rapids and developer of the successful Marketplace on 1st retail center across First Avenue East from Lindale Mall, cautioned that a few details need to be worked out before his investor group closes on the property purchase.
"I think it's all going to come together," Frew continued. "At long last we're in a position to move this project forward. "
