Six months into a $60 million remodel, Orem's University Mall is sporting a new light and airy look that portends the retail shopping atmosphere of the next century, according to mall manager Rob Kallas. Ceilings in the shopping corridors, featuring colorful patterned skylights and pastel shades of paint, are finished. The courtyard areas should be completed before the Christmas shopping season, and exterior work is scheduled to begin in the spring of 1999, adding another 100,000 square feet of retail space, a new food court and two large open outside courtyard areas. Construction is expected to be finished in the year 2000.
