Century Plaza is located on the eastern side of Birmingham, AL, on U.S. Route 78 (Crestwood Blvd.) near Interstate 20, across from the Eastwood Village (formerly Eastwood Mall). Situated on 62.73 acres, the mall opened in 1975 and over the years was anchored by Sears, Rich’s/Macy’s, Belk, and JCPenney. In May 2009, the mall was closed. The only active uses on the site are a 16,000 square foot Aldi grocery store that is operating on an outparcel and a BMW motorcycle sales and service center that Sears is subleasing in their former auto care building. Although a regional mall is no longer the highest and best use, the site enjoys a convenient location adjacent to Interstate 20. The redevelopment of neighboring Eastwood Mall into a Wal‐Mart anchored center indicates that Century Plaza may still be a viable retail location for big box retailers.
