Old Crestwood Mall hits the auction block Monday

CRESTWOOD, MO (KTVI) – The old Crestwood Court shopping mall will hit the online auction block.  The now-defunct mall closed for good in 2013.

The vacant mall sits on Watson Road, not far from Interstate 44.  The starting bid for the property is $1 million.  The online auctions starts at noon Central time Monday and runs until April 23.

The auction website details the old mall as 47 acres with more than 1 million square feet of space.

The site is being marketed by commercial real estate firm CBRE.

The website says converting the center from its former indoor environment to a more modern, open-air mixed use concept is the most promising potential for the site.

The winner of the auction should be known by the end of the week.
