MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Montgomery Mayor Todd Strange says a proposed buyer for the Montgomery Mall has stepped forward.

Strange says Atlanta-based Blue Ridge Capitol is in the process of buying the mall, which has been closed for some time. Officials with the company are expected to arrive in Montgomery next Wednesday to discuss the building's future.

"This is the beginning of, I would call it the revitalization of that area," said Mayor Strange. "With the incentive package that we now have available to us, it gives us the where with all to be able to do some things."

The mayor says the city is proposing the building be turned into a public service center, which could include a medical clinic. The purchase included more that 423,000 square feet of space in the mall proper and the Firestone store and BP station on the perimeter of the property.

It wasn't immediately known how much money was offered for the mall, but two buildings would not be included in the eventual sale. The old Parisian and Steve and Berry's buildings are owned seperately, and would not be affected by the sale.
