ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - Developers have a new plan for WinrockMall, a one-time Albuquerque showcase that lately has looked morelike a ghost town.
Competition from nearby ABQ Uptown just about killedWinrock. Now the developer is inviting nearby residents tooffer feedback on a plan which reportedly will open up part ofWinrock to open-air cafes and shopping.
In September a local developer purchased the state's oldestshopping mall from Prudential Insurance for an undisclosedamount. The mall is located on Louisiana Boulevard andInterstate 40.
The developer plans to preview his plans on Thursday for arearesidents some of whom are skeptical.
"We are getting too much traffic, and its just getting toocongested," one woman said.
"Of the things the neighborhood would like would be a store, nota superstore like a Wal-mart, but a smaller store the neighborhoodcould utilize," a man added.
According to the Albuquerque Business Journal the developerplans to keep about half of Winrock indoors and intact with theother half outdoors. However that depends on winning over theneighborhood.
If area residents back the idea, the owner reportedly wants torelaunch Winrock in 2011.
