The first store operational on the site was a 173,000-square-foot (16,100 m2) Sears department store, which opened for business in late 1963. The mall was first announced in 1971 by developer Leonard L. Farber, who also developed Pompano Square (now Pompano Citi Centre) in Pompano Beach, Florida. Under the original plans, the mall would be attached to the existing Sears store, with Burdines as the second anchor.
A free-standing movie theater was built on an outparcel in 1975 which existed until 1989. In 1988, J. W. Robinson's became Maison Blanche, who then built a new store behind the original two years later. The previous store would become more inline mall space connecting the new store with the rest of the mall. Maison Blanche became Gayfer's in 1992, which was then sold to Dillard's in 1998. J.C. Penney built a new store at the mall to replace a store at Winter Park Mall in 1993. An interior renovation completed in 2002. In 2004, a new movie theater owned by Premiere Cinemas opened in the mall. Burdines became Macy's in 2005.
