CHARLOTTE – The Charlotte City Council on Tuesday night approved the demolition of the former Eastland Mall.

A private company will tear down the 80-acre site early next year. There are two bids to transform the site into either a mixed-use development or a film and production studio.

The mall opened in 1975 and closed in 2010. The city is expected to preserve Eastland's iconic sun entrance signs and incorporate them into a public art project near the mall.
