Fayette Mall is a regional shopping mall in Lexington, Kentucky, located at 3401 Nicholasville Road in southern Lexington. It is the largest mall in the state of Kentucky.
It was opened by developer Richard E. Jacobs Group Inc. in 1971, supplanting Turfland Mall as Lexington's largest shopping mall. Its original anchor stores included Sears, Shillito's and Stewart Dry Goods. Fayette Mall was renovated and enlarged in 1993.
The mall was acquired in 2001 by CBL & Associates Properties Inc. of Chattanooga, Tennessee, which classifies Fayette Mall as one of its superior shopping centers, one of a dozen "distinct, high-performing properties" in its portfolio of more than 100 malls and shopping centers.
Fayette Mall's sales of $492 per square foot is the second-highest among CBL's properties. As of 2007 Fayette Mall featured 1,428,091 square feet (132,674 m2) of gross leasable area, 111 in-line stores and 5,704 parking spaces on 86.6 acres. There are no vacant parcels at the mall.
