This particular plan never materialized. In February , the mosaic murals remaining from Sanger-Harris were removed and demolition on the site was officially commenced by the site's owner, EF Properties, with plans to redevelop the site for mixed-use redevelopment in partnership with Ross Perot Jr. Total demolition, however, was not completed after Beck Ventures sued to prevent the site from being demolished completely. A trial on the fate of this particular plan is set for August, In , a twin-screen movie theater owned and operated by General Cinema Corporation was added to the northeast corner of the mall.
