MARQUETTE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WLUC) - The Westwood Mall in Marquette Township has been sold.
Marquette Township received an email on February 4 from the previous mall owner’s representative Howard Levy stating:
“Today we sold our remaining interest in the Westwood Mall to an entity controlled by Michael Kohen from Great Neck, New York. Mr. Kohen was very interested in purchasing the Mall after he saw the number of potential leases that could be executed with major tenants.
Ellen Sargent, Mall Manager, as well as the Mall employees will be retained by the new owner. We believe that Michael Kohen will provide the needed capital to allow for a revitalization of the Mall….”
There is no word yet on exactly what the developers plan to do with the space.
TV6 and FOX UP will have more information on the sale in Monday evening's newscasts.
