South Square Reconstruction Begins

Posted July 17, 2003 9:44 a.m. EDT

— The transformation of the old South Square Mall in Durham has begun.

Construction of a new strip shopping center is underway. The new mall will be anchored by a Super Target -- Durham's first. It is slated to open next year.

Eventually, 14 businesses will sit on the 52-acre shopping center site, including three holdovers from South Square: Chick-fil-A, Firestone and Office Depot.

The old South Square closed last year.
