Baton Rouge landmark being torn down for future Amazon delivery center
BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - Like, they’re totally tearing down the mall, OMG!
Yes, another iconic representation of your youth is going away. Cortana Mall, located on Florida Boulevard, is officially out of business.
Construction crews started demolition of the “old” mall. If you’re over the age of 35, you probably once referenced Cortana as the “new” mall.
Cortana Mall opened on August 4, 1976. At the time it was built, at 1.3 million square feet, it was the largest mall in the south.
No word on how long it will take to build the new warehouse facility.
The Dillard’s clearance store is still in its final phase of closing. It will close sometime in April.
