CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) - The City of Charlotte is hearing recommendations from staff regarding proposed developments at the property where the former Eastland Mall was located. The mall closed in 2010 and since then residents have waited to see what would replace it --- they’re still waiting.

Several proposals for the site’s redevelopment have been submitted to the city and on Monday, city staff is reviewing the proposals including a late addition submitted on Friday.

WBTV’s Investigative Reporter David Hodges is following along with the meeting and has live updates on the proposals --- and what direction staff is leaning.
