Talks about the McKinley Mall turning into sportsplex
McKinley Mall, which opened in 1985, is a shopping mall in Buffalo, New York, United States. The mall is located in Hamburg, New York at the intersection of McKinley Parkway and Milestrip Road
The McKinley Mall in Blasdell is struggling financially, but plans are in the works to try and change that.
This latest idea is to build a major sports complex on the site.
Debt research firm, Fitch Ratings, says the mall is in financial trouble with its loans. The Buffalo News is reporting the mall is as risk of imminent monetary default on its mortgage.
The sportsplex would include ice arenas, turf fields, locker rooms, and restaurants. according to Town of Hamburg Supervisor, Jim Shaw
The next step is to talk with the owner of the mall, Stoltz Managment, to see if this idea is at even all possible.
"I want to find out if we can help them and at the same time help ourselves," Shaw said.
