SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – After 55 years, the Eastfield Mall in Springfield officially closed its doors on July 15th.

The Eastfield Mall is expected to be developed into a mixed-use commercial and retail hub in the coming years. The Springfield City Council approved a special permit for Onyx Springfield Crossing to redevelop the property at 1655 Boston Road. Onyx, which is based in Needham, plans to build a more contemporary retail and commercial development at the mall site.

A 22News viewer sent photos on Monday of the vacant site after it closed.

The Hampden County Special Response Team and Medical Emergency Response Team recently used the vacant mall to train their officers and medical staff in the event of an active shooter. The response teams include members of local police departments, fire departments, and the Hampden County Sheriff’s Office.

Onyx Partners are planning to demolish the current building and build something new. The total cost of the redevelopment will fall between $65 million and $85 million and will take approximately two years to complete. The development will include a nationally recognized anchor and other well-known national brand tenants who will be announced at a later date as the development project advances.
