Regency Square is a 820,000 sq. ft. enclosed mall located in Richmond, Virginia. Its current owner is Taubman, who also owns the nearby Stony Point Fashion Park.
Regency Square opened in late 1975. Its anchor stores at the beginning were Sears, JCPenney, Miller & Rhoads and Thalhimer's.
The first renovation occured in 1987; its major addition was a food court. Cosmetic changes were also made, including changing the carpet's color from brown to green, its columns resurfaced with green marble, and the center court's fountain was demolished.
In 1991, the mall's original owners and proprietors, Quioccasin Associates, sold the mall to Prudential for $120M. Prudential owned the mall from 1991 to 1997. Michigan-based mall giant Taubman then bought the mall from Prudential in 1997. At the time, Regency's average sales were $400/sq.ft, surpassing Taubman averages of $365/sq.ft.
In 2012 in lieu of foreclosure, Bank of America took over the mall from from Taubman Centers.
In February 2015, a pair of veteran local development firms, Thalhimer Realty Partners and Rebkee Co, purchased 450,000 square feet of the mall (the remaining 370,000 sf are owned by Sears and JCP) for an estimated $13M.
For now, it will remain a mall and will not be redeveloped.
