The rebirth of Westdale Mall in Cedar Rapids, Iowa is fulfilling a long-awaited community goal of restoring this once proud propery to its prominence among Eatern Iowa’s prime retail and entertainment destinations. 

Westdale provides a unique community gathering experience featuring shopping, dining, and a hotel.  Denver-based Frew Development Group, LLC acquired Westdale Mall and its 72+ acre property in 2013. Formerly a 900,000 SF enclosed regional shopping center, Westdale opened in 1979 but suffered from reduced occupancy, deteriorating facility and site conditions, and inconsistent ownership. Westdale’s massive $90 million transformation is well underway and is now well into the vertical construction and retailer grand opening phase. 

The mall demolition, site infrastructure, entrance, and ring road work is complete, as are the interior roadways, site signage and the vast majority of parking fields and landscaping. Now is the perfect time for tenants to secure their location at Westdale!
