City officials say concerns with new mall are a little overstated

Posted: Updated:
Yakima, WA -  Yakima city leaders say reports earlier this week about problems with building the new mall are a little overstated.

Bill Cook with community and economic development says developers are still working out the design on a new on and off ramp from the interstate, which can be a slow process.

He also said stores don't usually like to show their cards early so they can't always announce who will be coming to a mall right away.

Northward Real Estate Group is looking to build the River Pointe Landing Shopping Center near the 16th Avenue and Highway 12 interchange.
