Katy Mills Mall is getting a make-over beginning this spring. On March 8, representatives from Simon, a real estate leader in shopping, dining and entertainment destinations, announced plans for a multimillion dollar interior renovation project that will transform Katy Mills into a more modern and convenient shopping destination. The first phase is an interior renovation that will create a brighter atmosphere in the mall with a new color palate. That phase is expected to be complete by the end of 2018, according to Simon representatives. Additional improvements include updating the food court to a dining pavilion with new furniture, family-style seating and LED lighting; new lounge areas and improved lighting throughout the mall and a new children’s play area.
