It opened on the corner of Washington Rd. (U.S. 19) and Gilkeson Rd. in 1964 as a Kaufmann's department store with 250,000 square feet (23,000 m2) of interior retail space. In 1988, the building was converted into a 62-space shopping mall after Kaufmann's moved into the former Gimbels department store building at nearby South Hills Village.
The mall was renovated in 2003 to revive the center, which was losing stores due to the competition of South Hills Village less than a mile away. New stores were added during and after the renovation; it is now home to approximately 40 stores. Anchor tenants include the boutique shops of Restoration Hardware, Williams-Sonoma, Talbots, and Pottery Barn. The mall announced the addition of Jezzabelle Ladies Wear and Synergy Fitness Spa to open in the spring of 2006. Entertainment and dining offerings at the mall include a six screen cinema and a half dozen dining establishments such as Bravo Cucina Italiana and Mitchell's Fish Market.
