According to the Salt Lake Deseret News, the Ogden Mall had seen better days in the 1980s and 1990s. By 1999, Nordstrom had left and J.C. Penney was packing. Major developers had said no to the city and that the mall had to be torn down. The city then bought the land for $6 million and had the mall torn down by 2002.
The center of the rebirth is a giant recreation center that includes restaurants, bowling, rock climbing, boarding, surfing and the works.
In the summer of 2007, Utah Jazz owner Larry Miller’s Megaplex 13 at The Junction opened. This was Miller’s fifth Utah Megaplex. The Ogden Standard-Examiner said the cost was $11 to $15 million. With total seating listed as 2,460, the auditorium sizes range from 120 to 590 seats. Other services include auditorium rentals, private screenings, catering and rooms for group meetings and parties.
