There are new plans to develop the site where the Dixie Square Mall once stood.The mall in south suburban Harvey was made famous when the Blues Brothers smashed their way through the building in their 1979 movie.

The long-abandoned mall has a new developer who plans to tear it down and build new stores and housing. The plan calls for large and small retail stores as well as housing to be built on the site over the next five years.

Demolition could start later this month.
