Columbia’s Richland Mall Seeks Rezoning


The owners of Richland Mall in Forest Acres hope new zoning will help spur development at the retail center. But don’t expect it to be all retail.

“We’re gearing up to a redevelopment plan that will hopefully bring the mall alive,” said Don Taylor, a principal in Century Capital Group, which bought the perennially troubled mall almost two years ago and is working to develop a master plan.

New zoning could open that plan up to a variety of uses. A new fine arts center already is setting up shop, and plans to open Thursday with dinner and a show.

Previous zoning at the mall was tied to a failed plan to change its name to Midtown at Forest Acres and turn the mall inside out.
