The mall has also undergone physical renovations to the inside of the main original mall. They started to replace the old dated brown and yellow flooring and uncomfortable benches throughout the mall and put in new modern white flooring and new sitting options. These renovations to the original mall are still happening and will continue until they have completed the modernization phase.

The new additions include a completely new north grand entrance and offers a new modern walkway into the mall. It also includes a JW Marriott and a medium size multipurpose building that they have said will be used for office space, more nightlife and entertainment options and smaller boutique style retail.
