After starting demolition earlier this year, property owner Brixton Capital has signed leases with two major retailers to occupy the former Sears building on the west side of Everett Mall. At Home Stores LLC will make its debut at the mall. Existing tenant ULTA Beauty will also move into the remodeled space. Brixton Vice President of Leasing Eric Li said, “We’re excited to showcase such popular stores at part of the first phase of our redevelopment of Everett Mall. We are in active lease negotiations with additional anchor and junior anchor tenants which will further enhance the overall shopping experience for the Everett community.”

Upon completion of the redeveloped, one-story building, At Home Stores will occupy approximately 85,000 square feet and ULTA will take 10,000 square feet. The mall is located at 1302 SE Everett Mall Way and will be redeveloped in three phases. The potential first phase of the project requires a division of the former Sears building on the west side of the mall. For phase two, the main front entrance where the food court is currently located, would be demolished and an open area would be created. Retail stores would be placed on either side of a path leading to Regal Cinemas. These changes are subjected to revision, with nothing official being approved yet.

City of Everett Economic Development Director Dan Eernissee said, “Now more than ever, people realize the importance of human connection and high-quality gathering spaces. We’re glad to see Everett Mall receiving a makeover that will improve its shopping, entertainment, and recreation experiences.” Brixton purchased Everett Mall in 2017 and has worked closely with the city to identify a redevelopment plan that would create a vibrant retail and entertainment center. Brixton Capital Vice President Justin Long said, “Everett Mall was last redeveloped in 2004. These new tenants are just the first element of a total makeover to Everett Mall that will make the property more relevant to the tastes of today’s shopper. In addition to replacing the former department store anchors of Sears and Macy’s, we will be adding additional uses and tenants that respond to the community’s needs.”

Store opening dates are not yet determined. Entitlement and redevelopment work is still ongoing. Bayley Construction is the general contractor for the project and MG2 is providing architectural services.
