The mall consists of 99 stores on four levels with a gross leasable area of 729,981 square feet (67,817.5 m2). When first conceived in the 1980s, it was intended to contain the existing Ayres and William H. Block department stores along with one or two others new to the city. Before the mall could open, both the Ayres and Block stores had closed, leaving Nordstrom and Parisian (later converted to Carson's) as anchors.
The third level features a food court. The fourth level features entertainment venues (Tilt Studio and a nine-screen United Artists movie theater), but also now contains non-retail tenants.
Construction of the mall cost $307.5 million. Efforts were made in its design to incorporate historic elements, such as the retention of the facades of buildings that had previously existed on the site.
With the closure of Nordstrom in 2011 and that of Carson's on April 29, 2018, the mall has no department stores. In response to the changing retail conditions, the mall has looked to non-traditional mall usages; in 2014, for example, The Indianapolis Star moved its offices into part of the space vacated by Nordstrom.
Circle Centre Mall reviews
Great parking option, even if the mall isn't your destination. Good food court options, including some vegetarian options. Fairly standard mall booths and shops. Clothes, jewelry, etc. Seemed pretty quiet, but I went during big events that may have kept regular shoppers at bay.
Really enjoyed this mall and I say that as I am not one to visit a mall more than 2-3 times a year. Vast amount of stores of which several appear to be locally owned along with a fair amount of larger retailers. We visited several shops and customer service was fantastic, especially the Home Grown Indiana and Collectors Den stores. We also visited the Oakley store and had great customer service with no pressure to purchase. Parking in nearby parking garages that were only $3.00 for up to three hours.
