:: UrbEx Series : Dixie Square Mall ::

Dixie Square Mall opened in 1966, in Harvey, Illinois, but was only opened to the public for 13 years, before it finally closed in 1979.  This 800,000 square foot structure has seen much of its remains crumpling, or simply getting hauled off by scrappers. Harvey is a completely downtrodden economic area, and the area sits on the South side of Chicago, so there is not much hope for redevelopment.
