Sometimes moving a department store, while very costly, can open up other opportunities to create additional value on a property. At Stones River Mall, after over 30 site plan schemes, it was decided to move two. By building new department stores in new locations, valuable real estate was created for a lifestyle center addition and a new food court anchored by a book store. Murfreesboro is the home of the largest university in the State by student population. The interior design of the renovation merged the town and gown aspects of the community. Simple articulated forms representing modern university life were contrasted with textured natural materials representing the region’s rural character and authentic sense of American history.
