"Montgomery Mall" has a new name

Montgomery, Ala. (WSFA) -- The building formally known as Montgomery Mall has a new name.

Mayor Todd Strange said Friday he wants the building to be referred to as "Montgomery Commons" because he feels it will never be a mall again.

Mayor Strange also said he met with Blue Ridge Capital, the new owner earlier this week. The next step will be meeting with perspective tenants.

The mayor said don't expect fast action when it comes to Montgomery Commons, but in about 6 people will see things happening.
