Tyrone Mall cinema option lives on; nominate great women for awards

ST. PETERSBURG

Tyrone Mall cinema option is kept alive

Simon Property Group, the owner of Tyrone Square Mall, recently received another three years to consider building a movie theater at the mall. Just before a site plan would have expired after three years, the company submitted a modified plan to the city. The city approved the new plan for the 44,000-square-foot building that would go up in the northwest corner of the parking lot beyond JCPenney. A spokesman for Simon declined to comment, so it is not clear if the company is simply buying three more years to think about it or if it plans to start construction in the near future.
