Southland Mall, originally known as Cutler Ridge Mall, is a shopping mall in Cutler Bay (formerly Cutler Ridge), Florida. It opened in 1978[2] as an extension of the Cutler Ridge Shopping Center, which itself was opened in 1960 (shortly after its "grand reopening", the Cutler Ridge Mall moniker was subsequently applied to the entire shopping center complex). Subsequent additions extended the mall in the early to mid-1980s.

History

The original shopping center opened in 1960, anchored by Food Fair (Pantry Pride) and Richard's, which later became Burdines. In 1978, it was expanded into a full mall anchored by J. C. Penney, Jordan Marsh and Lord & Taylor, the last of which opened in 1982.[3] Lord & Taylor closed in 1990 and became Mervyns in 1991. Pantry Pride became a Phar-Mor.

The mall was nearly destroyed by Hurricane Andrew in 1992. When Cutler Ridge Mall reopened the following year, none of the original Cutler Ridge Shopping Center (except Sears) remained standing.[4] The owner, Simon DeBartolo (now Simon Property Group) declared bankruptcy in the late 1990s and ownership was transferred to Lender Ocwen Federal Bank. Jordan Marsh became an auxiliary Burdines store for a short time, but after the mall was damaged by the hurricane, Burdines consolidated to the former Jordan Marsh. The former Richard's/Burdines building was torn down for J. Luria and Sons, a local catalog showroom chain, which opened at the mall in 1994.[5][6][7] The Luria's building later became Garden Ridge Pottery, while Dillard's took the former Mervyns which closed in 1997. Garden Ridge later closed and became smaller stores. Phar-Mor was torn down for a Kmart.

In 2002, management of the mall as assigned to T/S Development of Miami, Florida, which changed the name of the mall in November 2003 to Southland Mall.[8] Also, the Dillard's store closed and was torn down in 2004 for Regal Cinemas.[9] T/S Development then bought the property in November 2004, and sold their interests to Investcorp International Realty, a global investment group, in December 2006. Investcorp engaged Gumberg Asset Management Corp in Fort Lauderdale to handle the day-to-day management and leasing of Southland Mall.[10]

Currently, Southland Mall features JCPenney, Macy's, and Sears as its anchor stores. The mall also features a movie theater, LA Fitness, DSW Shoe Warehouse, Old Navy, TJ Maxx, Buffalo Wild Wings, and Ulta. Additional businesses on the mall property include Kmart, Ross Dress for Less, SunTrust, Olive Garden, Applebee's, and Regions Bank.
