Red Bird is Back! Oak Cliff Mall Taking Back Its Original Name

DALLAS -- Community leaders are looking to revitalize Southwest Center Mall in Oak Cliff -- and it's all starting with a name change.

The mall is going back to its old moniker, Red Bird.

It's all part of an ambitious plan unveiled this weekend that calls for a Marriott Courtyard hotel, office and green space, a tech incubator, and apartments.

Funds for the upgrade still have to be secured, but officials say the majority of the construction will start either late this year or early 2018.
