Commercial redevelopment has started in the neighborhood. On the east side, the University Mall (built as an enclosed mall in 1967) was demolished in the spring of 2008 and the site was scheduled to be redeveloped and opened as the Park Avenue lifestyle center in October, 2009. But, due to the recession, the project is now postponed indefinitely. However, residential redevelopment continues. Many Briarwood homes have been recently updated with double-glazed windows and up-to-date baths and kitchens.
