Simon Property Group has announced the next phase of the redevelopment plan for Burlington Mall, a Simon Center.

Burlington Mall is currently being redesigned to include several new restaurants and retail stores. The mall is slated to open this fall, adding 4 new restaurants: Parm, an Italian restaurant that is new to Massachusetts; Fogo De Chao, a Brazilian steakhouse; Bennett’s Sandwich Shop, a Maine-based chain with 3 additional locations; and Shake Shack, a popular burger chain. In addition to the restaurants, the mall is adding three new retail stores over the next year, including Fabletics, Milton’s The Store for Men, and Lands’ End. More restaurants and shops will be announced at a later date.

New additions also include an outdoor park and event space. The 1 acre outdoor green space offers spacious outdoor seating, al fresco dining, and amenities for seasonal programs and community events. A new pedestrian link allows guests easy access from the mall to The Village. The new main entrance should be completed in June. As can be seen in the photos and on the mall’s map, these new locations will take over the area where Sears was located, which the mall closed in 2018.

“We are thrilled that the latest improvements to the Burlington Mall, combined with existing retail and dining options, are bringing our loyal customers a reinvented, modern and convenient shopping and dining experience,” said Justin Feldhouse, general manager of Burlington Mall. “With a wide variety of retail stores, a variety of restaurants and new outdoor amenities, Burlington Mall will continue to be the most popular shopping, dining and entertainment destination in the greater Boston area.”
