Following a string of businesses pulling out of Hickory Hollow Mall, owner CBL Properties is evicting some of the remaining tenants. CBL is trying to make way for what it calls an “evolution.”
A statement from CBL says Hickory Hollow is “already in the process of reinventing itself.”
Nashville State Community College begins classes in an old department store this fall, and Metro Nashville is working on a community center and other public spaces.
The owner says a portion of the mall in Southeast Davidson County will close to make the transition easier, but also so a plan can be developed for the rest of the property.
A spokesperson for CBL says roughly a dozen tenants have been allowed to stay. The rest have 30 to 60 days to leave.
