The Galleria at White Plains is a large enclosed urban shopping mall located in the downtown area of White Plains, New York, a commercial and residential suburb 20 miles (32 km) north of New York City.
Built in 1981 by the Cadillac Fairview, a Canadian developer, the 900,000 square-foot, four-level mall is located on two large city blocks of former urban renewal land. Its anchor stores are Macy's and Sears, which were relocated to the mall from nearby locations to replace original anchor stores, Abraham & Straus and J.C. Penney in 1995 and 2004 respectively. The mall was constructed adjacent to a large two-block long parking garage which is connected directly to the mall at various levels.
Similar to a sister project in nearby Stamford, Connecticut (the Stamford Town Center mall), the Galleria's architectural character appears fortress-like and overwhelms even the recent high density urban quality of its downtown environment.
