Bayfair Announces New Lease & Remodel for Macy's

The retail giant that has anchored the mall since 1957 will stay in San Leandro and upgrade its 213,000 square foot store.


Bayfair Center's biggest store will be getting a makeover.

Macy's, which has been the mall's cornerstone since it opened in 1957, has renewed its lease and promised to remodel its store, according to Madison Marquette Property Investments, which owns the shopping center.

Macy's ocupies 27 percent of the mall's 813,307 square feet of retail space. Other big retailers include Target, Kohl’s, Old Navy, Staples and Bed Bath & Beyond.

As Patch reported last week , creating some apprehension about the store's future in San Leandro.

Monday's announcement calms those fears.

“The recommitment of such a long term tenant is a testament to the continued distinction of Bayfair Center as a premier retail destination in the Bay Area,” said Madison Marquette Managing Director Eric Hohmann.

Madison Marquette took the occasion to tout other improvements at Bayfair Center, including recent upgrades at Chili’s, 24 Hour Fitness and T-Mobile.

Bayfair is also adding two new tenants -- Digger's Diner and Pizza-cademy -- to its Central Fork food court. Both will open over the summer.

“Bayfair offers such great retail, dining and gathering space for our community,” said Pamela White, Vice President of Development and Project Manager at Bayfair Center.

This story will be updated as additional information becomes available.

Macy's must have limited options for store locations with low invetory and shortages they experience there. The 24 Hour work was because of age and use; the winning business for free rent at the food court never established it's space. These new food vendors will still leave Subway as the only healthy option. The new construction for the Jamba Juice and Yogurt shop was never paid to specialty contractor by Madison Marquette ad it's G.C. Property Improvement work at Bayfair is a risk to local small business; and should be avoided.

This is good news, I will give the store another try when its remodeled!!! I will also test out the remodeled 24 HR Fitness. This will make my Target and farmers market trips more interesting!

Let me guess...your the one who's always posting the rants against Bayfair Mall on Craigslist. If your a contractor that was stiffed, did you try and place any liens on them?

Isn't it sad that we have to welcome the fact that San Leandro hasn't lost yet another business? Talk about keeping the bar low. One business that we have lost is The Mutt Hut, near my house. I'm not a huge hot dog fan, and their hot dogs were nothing special, but I loved the existence of that little restaurant. It's sad to see it gone And Barry, as for 24-hour fitness, see my comment-to-be on the arrest of the "burglar" last Sunday.

The Mutt Hut did serve quality hot dogs. What killed the Mutt was a lousy location. Not enough lunch time folks nearby. I would stop in occasionally at lunch if I was in town on business, biggest surprise is how long they were able to stay open. .

Oh, no. What a loss. I can't eat hot dogs any more (gone vegan) but I loved the place.
