PARMA, Ohio — The new owners of the former Parmatown Mall have released a new name and design for the plaza.

The Shoppes at Parma will have a “Main Street” setting, according to Phillips Edison & Company, with new shops, restaurants and services.

The company plans to present new renderings for the first phase of its redevelopment plan to the Parma Planning Commission Wednesday. The renderings include a new design for the plaza and future outbuilding.

“Our plan is to go beyond a basic facelift and redevelopment for this long-standing regional shopping center,” said Roy Williams, senior vice president of Phillips Edison’s Strategic Investment Funds, in a release issued Tuesday. “We believe the new name reflects the changes we will be making throughout the property to create a more inviting streetscape with additional landscaping, lighting, outdoor seating and other amenities.”

Williams said the company must still work through extensive planning processes for design, financing, leasing and city approvals.

“We are very excited about the alignment of our plans with what Parma City officials have described as their vision for this valuable community asset,” said Williams.
