This is a dog friendly mall with many restaurants with outside seating. There are 90 more stores coming with minimum impact on existing store shopping.

UTC Mall has a wide variety of great retail stores and restaurants, from mid-range to high-end. Love the architecture design through out the mall. This shopping center is awesome. Every time we visit this area we have to go.
