Lakeside Mall is a large shopping mall located in the city of Sterling Heights, Michigan, a northeastern suburb of Detroit, Michigan, United States. The mall is located on M-59 (Hall Road) between Hayes and Schoennherr Roads.
Lakeside Mall features five anchor stores: J.C. Penney, Lord & Taylor, Macy's, Macy's Men's & Home Store, and Sears; additional junior anchors include Steve & Barry's University Sportswear, as well as the fist H&M in the state of Michigan. The mall also features more than 150 stores on two levels, as well as a food court. General Growth Properties owns and manages the mall.
The architecture is comprised of the the same unique concept found in other 1970's Taubman malls such as the Twelve Oaks Mall and the Fairlane Town Center. The mall's interior has never been significantly updated since the mall's 1976 opening. The interior decor consists of wood railings, tinted escalator glass, hexagon-shaped skylights with a pair of large lights hanging from them, a lighted "octa-lift" elevator, terrazzo flooring, large seating areas with pyramid shaped lights, and large sculptures found in the anchor courts.History
Lakeside Mall started as a joint-venture between A. Alfred Taubman, and the Dutch investment company Rodamco. It was built and opened in 1976. In the last decade, Rodamco sold the mall to the Rouse Company, which was subsequently acquired by General Growth Properties.
