The ownership said essential businesses will remain open.
Mason Asset Management and Namdar Realty Group announced April 7 their group is closing Regency Square Mall until further notice, although essential businesses will remain open.
The ownership is closing the mall because of concerns around the COVID-19 global pandemic and in accordance with the Florida state mandate.
The Arlington mall is at 9501 Arlington Expressway.
A news release said the closure was specific to nonessential businesses, as defined by the mandate, and that essential businesses will remain open.
It did not say which tenants are essential.
“We have been closely tracking developments related to COVID-19 and have been following the guidance of authorities, ensuring that above all else, our patrons, merchants, and employees are safe and healthy,” said ownership in a statement.
“The situation has indeed evolved, and in accordance with the state mandate and with our community in mind, we have temporarily closed all Florida malls until further notice.”
The statement said it appreciated its team's work “in maintaining a safe and clean environment over the last few weeks, and we hope to re-open as soon as possible."
On March 18, Mason Asset Management and Namdar Realty Group issued a statement that they were monitoring the COVID-19 situation.
Common areas and seating were closed at that time and several stores had shut down as well.
