BEND, OR-El Dorado Properties of Costa Mesa, CA is preparing to expand its 20-year-old Bend River Mall by eight acres and dress up the old buildings a bit. The new acreage, located on the east side of the mall adjacent Bend Parkway, will make room for 40,000-sf of new retail space, parking, extensive landscaping, and utilities development.

A 10,000-sf retail pad will be located on both the northeast and southeast corners of the property, and a 20,000-sf pad will go in the center of the property. The pad in the northeast corner will reportedly be a restaurant. As well, a rear entrance will be added to the property as well as a pedestrian walkway, and the interior of the existing mall will be updated with new colors and a new design.

The improvements to the existing mall will begin early next year along with the parking, landscaping and utility work for the expansion space. After that, work on the retail pads will begin.
