I’m thinking this may be my last post of the mall for a while. I try to stop by at least once a week to see the progress. I was hoping I could have seen them tearing down the Sears sign, but too late, its already in the piles of tin steel and concrete.
Here is a panoramic shot from the raised parking lot to the east. I’m just a little too far away.
SEArS. The letters on the Sears end of the mall have been hanging for a while before the mall actually closed. I stopped by when you could still go inside the mall and could not resist to shoot the sign.

It wont be dangling much longer as the demo crew has started on that section of the mall.

Its kind of funny the barricade is still there. We sure don’t want that letter to fall on anyone!
Collin Creek mall is well underway of being demolished to make room for the new facility.
It’s interesting, for me anyway, to watch the heavy machinery knock this building down. With the precision of a very large human hand, the operators can separate the tin from the re-bar and concrete and place in individual piles.
I will be back next weekend to see how much more is knocked down. At some point I may post a photo time-laps.
Collin Creek Mall is being demolished and investors are making way for a new mixed-use facility.
With fences all the way around, I have to find some higher ground to get the camera over them to see what is behind. Heavy machinery and piles of scrap lay around on the east side where the demolition is underway.

It looks like they may have attempted to save some of the Mosaic that was on Macy’s.
Maybe this is what is meant by an “Open Air” Mall.
