The potential Mall at Oyster Bay project remains at a standstill as mall builders look for a new anchor store.
In March, Bill Taubman of Taubman Centers, Inc., the company trying to build the mall, asked the Long Island Regional Planning Council not to vote on whether or not the mall was "regionally significant," according to Newsday. Taubman received word that Nieman Marcus, one of the featured anchor stores in the proposed mall, had decided to instead build a store at the soon expanding Roosevelt Field Mall, said the report.
Until Taubman finds a replacement store, said the report, the issue will continue to be tabled at upcoming meetings. However, certain council members found it unprofessional that Taubman had waited until the March meeting to inform them that he needed the issue tabled.
Put yourself in the council's shoes.
When a new anchor store is found, what do you think the Long Island Regional Planning Council will do? Do you think they will be supportive once a new anchor store is secured?
