Plans for an outlet mall in Garfield Heights just off I-480 have crumbled at the Bridgeview Crossing site — but the troubled and abandoned construction area on Transportation Boulevard could still have a future.

Garfield Heights Mayor Vic Collova said he met with the developers, California-based Craig Realty Group, a few weeks ago and they decided to go in a different direction.

“I’ve signed a confidentiality agreement, but the outlet mall is not coming here. [Craig Realty Group] is pursuing a different venture,” Collova said. “If this new direction comes to fruition, I’m certain there won’t be any disappointed people in Garfield. They’ll be very happy.”

The timeline for construction is still expected to say the same — construction in 2017 and an opening in 2018.
