Southlands Lifestyle Center (also Southlands Mall, Southlands, The Southlands, or The Southlands at Aurora) is a regional shopping mall located in Aurora, Colorado. The center is located at the intersection of Smoky Hill Road and the E-470 tollway, about 15 miles south of Denver International Airport, east of the Saddle Rock neighborhood and west of Cherokee Trail High School and the Tallyn's Reach neighborhood. Based on retail floor space, Southlands is the largest non-enclosed mall in the United States. It opened in 2005, featuring a unique design incorporating a "Main Street" of shops and smaller eateries, surrounded by larger stores near the perimeter of the center. Currently there are about 40 vacant retail locations on Main Street. In March 2018, the property was purchased by M & J Wilkow Ltd. and MetLife Investment Management.

  • Great shops, both national chains and small independent stores co-exist. On a sunny day, I like nothing better than strolling down Main Street, seeing what's new  more »
  • We walked around and visited the Local. It had unique Colorado made gifts. Also a great spice shop is nearby.  more »
  • Our service and food were both excellent! We had a larger group which did not effect the quality of our service. Our server opened by asking if we happened to be celebrating anything. We were actually celebrating a birthday which she referenced kindly throughout our meal. After dinner she brought over a complimentary dessert with spoons enough to share with the whole group. Friendly, server and staff from start to finish.
  • Although things are subject to change, my overall enjoyment here has been really nice. So much stores and things to do, a nice trip with your friends will do. There was one store that I haven't been to, the Cookie store. After I passed it the aroma was magical. Would recommend a stop there.
