Mall of the Bluffs Still for Sale

The Mall of the Bluffs has been a staple of the Council Bluffs community since it was built in 1986 along Madison Avenue near the Interstate 80 interchange. The 491,988-square-foot mall was the hot spot for shopping in the area for many years until competition from new shopping destinations appeared in the last decade.

It was set to be auctioned off this past Monday at noon through Wednesday at noon. The opening bid was set at $1.5 million dollars and bidding reached $4.5 million but did not go any further. It did not reach the secret reserve limit set by the auction company. Due to this, the current owners will continue to search for a buyer.

If you had to money to shell out for the property, what would you do with it?
