New Name for Montgomery Mall: "One Center"
On Tuesday, a crowd gathered outside the aged walls of the former Montgomery Mall, waiting to hear of what it would become.

"Today is a celebration for this community," said Steve Patrick, vice president of leasing and management for Blue Ridge Capital. "This property has a lot of history, a lot of nostalgia, a lot of good memories for a lot of people that have grown up with this property, and today, we're going to set it in a new direction."

City and county officials gathered at the former mall Tuesday to unveil the new name of the building, which will now be called "One Center." The project is operated by Blue Ridge Capital, an Atlanta-based company that has owned the property since 2008.

Patrick said there is an estimated 250,000 square feet of unused space on the property. Looking toward the next year or so, he said the next step would be to look for non-retail businesses to move into facility, pre-leasing at least 100,000 square feet in order to jumpstart the project.

"I think it will be a matter of getting some larger users committed first, and then we will have smaller users come in," Patrick said.

Beverly Callaway, project director for BRC, said Blue Ridge Capital has been in contact with a number of different businesses about leasing space in the building for a variety of purposes, such as a daycare and medical offices. Callaway also spoke of the possibility of bringing a performance arts center to the property.

"There are a lot of different uses that will be going with this mall," Callaway said. "We are breathing new life into this mall starting today."...
