Initial plans called for the mall to be 1100000sqft in size, but it was scaled back to 865000sqft.In 2004, plans were announced for a surfing park, named Ron Jon Surfpark, to be built inside the mall.

Aside from the main anchors, most of the mall would receive extensive alterations. The signature lake and tile mosaic signs were later on removed from the mall.

  • When it was new this placed just seemed a bit slow to take off as shops stayed empty but at least those that were there were open and sold stuff you remotely wanted. Most have now been replaced by art...  more »
  • Almost everything is closed or going to close at this shopping center/marketplace. So this was a disappointing waste of time...  more »
  • Nothing more to say that the Center is closed the parking is so often empty but guarded, after 10 pm a less friendly population ends up with lovers of l excellent Cinemark cinema

  • Good place to go when waiting for a movie at the nearby theater. Usually not crowded. Good selection.
  • The mall has pretty much closed. There's a few stores open around the parameter of it, but not many. The movie theatre is still open and more awesome than ever! You pick your seat when you buy your tickets, so you know exactly where you'll be sitting. The seats are wide, comfortable, electric recliners, with wide armrest, so you aren't fighting for arm space! To top it off, they also serve beer, wine, and Starbucks!
  • What to say? It's a mall. Unfortunately, in this case, it is a mall that is dying. The mall has putt-putt, movies, Bass Pro, Fuddruckers...that's about it. It is sad. The slow dying of America is epitomized by this mall...AND ON I-DRIVE NO LESS...this is a real shame because the business model SHOULD have worked! Here is to our country's big come back! (And, to this mall having new life breathed into it!)
  • This was a great place. Its too bad they closed artegon. It was my #1 hang out spot with friends. Much better and with a better vibe than Disney Springs.
  • Even though the place was nice before it closed i just felt the Festival Bay Mall was more of a "unique mall with character". Artegon Lacked many stores and was very dead but the ceiling was well lit. I felt that if they got tenets for the Festival Bay mall it could of been better. The mall before just felt more tropical and cool yet hip. Just sad what happened.
