The end of 2017 saw significant change at Charlestowne Mall in St. Charles.

The Krausz Companies Inc. – owner of the mall, which it renamed The Quad – closed the interior shops and enclosed mall space at the center Dec. 1.

Mall anchors Von Maur, Carson’s and Classic Cinemas remain open, as does Threading and Henna, which has relocated near the Classic Cinemas entrance. Getting into those businesses is now accessed directly from the outside doors only. Access roads and parking lots remain open as usual.

Cooper’s Hawk, Starbucks and the newly opened Verizon store are not affected by the enclosed mall closure, according to a news release from The Krausz Companies.

The concept plan presented to the St. Charles City Council on May 8 included keeping portions of the mall building but significantly reducing its size.

The Krausz Companies plans to tear down most of the mall building, with the exception of the remaining mall anchors.

When the demolition will take place is uncertain.

“We would hope toward the end of next year," Krausz representative Chuck May had said.
