NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The owners of The Mall at Green Hills announced major expansion plans for the shopping center that will bring new retailers to Nashville.

"The Mall at Green Hills is planning to undertake a multi-million dollar expansion," said Karen Mac Donald, spokesperson for Taubman, the mall's owners.

Shoppers at the mall welcomed the news of the expansion.

"As our city continues to grow, and really grow in the ranks of the shopping world in general, in the nation, we need it. So it's exciting," said shopper Mila Grigg.

Plans call for the demolition of the current parking structure behind the Dillard's department store. A new parking deck will be built on a surface parking lot on Cleghorn Avenue.

Dillard's will replace its current store at The Mall at Green Hills.

"This store will feature our latest advances in store design and technology. We have been very happy to be a part of The Mall at Green Hills for a number of years and we are pleased to work with Taubman to make it even better for our Nashville customers," said Dillard's spokesperson Julie Bull.

The new Dillard's store will be 180,000 square feet and should be completed by 2016.

Jessica Fry recently moved to Nashville and was happy to hear about plans to expand the mall.

"I was a little disappointed at the size of this mall, for how large a city Nashville is. So I am glad to hear they are going to be adding some more shopping here. I think they can use it," Fry said.

The new retail space will be built on the land currently occupied by the Dillard's store. Taubman has not announced what retailers may move into The Mall at Green Hills.

The mall's owner also plans to add new sidewalks to improve walk ability around the shopping center.

All phases of the multi-million dollar expansion are expected to be completed by 2018.
