Katy Mills mall is nearly finished with a multimillion dollar renovation project.

The mall—located at 5000 Katy Mills Circle, Katy—has completed its interior remodel and started on improvements to its exterior, which are expected to be completed before the end of 2019, according to an Oct. 21 press release.

These improvements include:

  • adding light towers with oversized, illuminated mall entry information;

  • installing LED lighting, a new monument, directional signs and concrete walkways; and

  • applying new paint and decorations, such as woven metal mesh screens.


“These improvements were designed with our shoppers and retailers in mind, and we are excited to finalize the center’s fresh look with the exterior makeover just in time for the holidays," Katy Mills General Manager James Ross said in the release.

The mall will be open and operating during the renovations, per the release.

The multimillion dollar renovation project was first announced in March 2018. The interior remodel included updating the mall’s food court and color palette as well as installing a new movie theater courtyard and interactive Disney Jr. play area.

Owned by Simon Property Group LP, Katy Mills is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year.
