ASHEVILLE, NC (FOX Carolina) -

The former Biltmore Square Mall in Asheville is being transformed into an open-air shopping center.

On Tuesday, construction crews are scheduled to finish removing the roof of the former shopping mall on Brevard Road.

A new, 325,000 square foot outlet center that provides shoppers with an indoor/outdoor experience will be constructed on the site, according to a media release.

The Biltmore Square Mall opened in 1989 and shut its doors in Jan. 2014.

The Asheville Outlets are scheduled to open in spring 2015.
