Construction of the mall started in the mid-1970s but the property sat unfinished and empty for almost a decade. It finally opened in 1984 and by the late 80s had a JCPenney, Service Merchandise, Dillard’s and movie theatre. Who else loved riding the escalator down to the food court? However, in the late 1990s Eastland mirrored East Tulsa’s decline in development and most of major retailers closed their locations in the mall.
In 2007 the renovated mall found new life as a regional headquarters of Coca-Cola Enterprises. As of 2015 it houses tenants such as the DMV, University of Phoenix and the Paul Mitchell Beauty School.
I took these pictures back in 2007 and I wish I had taken more. This Land has a nice article on the rise and fall of Eastland that is worth checking out.
