Monroeville Mall Announces Additional Security Upgrades

MONROEVILLE MALL ANNOUNCES ADDITIONAL SECURITY UPGRADES

Additional Security Upgrades Planned for Monroeville Mall
Monroeville, PA (June 30, 2015) – At a press conference today, Monroeville Mall officials announced additional security upgrades for Monroeville Mall, located in the Monroeville suburb of Pittsburgh. Security upgrades include the installation of an internal and external state-of-the-art video camera system. This cutting edge system will have both on and off-site monitoring capabilities. Monroeville Mall’s security provider will also take other measures to enhance visibility and maximize coverage of the center; including adding additional security hours and shifts.

This announcement comes on the heels of many other security measures that have already been put in place. A Monroeville Police Department Substation opened inside the mall in March and on-duty Monroeville Police officers will be available at the Police Substation during peak shopping hours. In addition, Monroeville Police will increase the number of patrolling officers throughout the malls interior and exterior.

In February, management launched a Youth Escort Policy (YEP), which requires anyone under the age of 18 to be accompanied by a parent or guardian over the age of 21 on Friday and Saturday evenings after 6pm. This program has been met with positive feedback from customers, retailers, and Monroeville officials.

“Thank you Lance and CBL for your leadership in working with all of the retailers here at the mall, and with law enforcement officials and community leaders toward re-assuring shoppers that the mall at Monroeville is a terrific, convenient and safe place to shop,” said Mark Ionadi, Macy’s Representative.

In addition to the announced security upgrades, officials discussed their plans for the mall’s multi-million dollar renovation, currently underway. Once completed, the interior will feature an updated color scheme, new lighting fixtures to brighten common areas, and sleek, stainless steel railings lining the walkways.

Guests will discover modernized, soft-seating lounge stations designed for relaxation and conversation. Remodeled restrooms will feature new tile, granite, and cherry wood finishes. The food court will also receive a facelift that includes new furniture to complement the overall contemporary design. New benches and receptacles will also enhance the mall’s exterior appeal. In addition, the children’s play area will be updated with a brand new look, theme and play elements. The renovation is slated to be complete just in time for the 2015 holiday season with details about a renovation celebration and play area grand opening being announced later this year.

“Our commitment to the community is clear. We have and are continuing to make significant investments in Monroeville Mall through these security enhancements and the comprehensive revitalization,” said Lance Ivy, Regional Director of Management at CBL & Associates Properties, Inc., owner of Monroeville Mall. “Monroeville Mall has long held a special place in the community as a favored destination. Our goal through these upgrades is to ensure that shoppers can continue to expect a welcoming, vibrant destination to shop, dine, and spend time with family and friends for years to come.”
