Capital Mall is a 14,000 SF retail center being repositioned with the assistance of the City of Rome as a multi-tenant cafe oriented center serving the needs of adjacent Capital Theatre patrons, local downtown office workers and nearby neighborhood residents. The City of Rome will be reconstructing West Dominick Avenue in from of the Mall, including its sidewalk front plaza area. The City will also be demolishing a derelict parking garage behind the mall and replacing it with housing, reconstructing and enhancing Boardman Road with new parking adjacent to the mall and a new plaza for cafe patrons. In addition, several current and prospective tenants are in application for working capital funding for their shops, and Capital Mall itself is in application for facade grant funds. The one carry-over tenant, an Italian restaurant, is renewing its lease, a new coffee shop/cafe has recently opened and is already planning on expending, and Capital Mall has letters of intent for a wine bar, brew pub, and fine dining restaurant, which will fill out the leasing for the mall.
