     Steel Valley Brew Works to offer craft beer and specialty coffee
      Announcement of neighbors to Steel Valley Brew Works to follow in near future, and
      include an indoor golf entertainment center, additional entertainment and dining offerings
      Demolition of former Sears remains on pace, to be replaced by DeBartolo Commons, a new four-acre athletic and entertainment green space and event venue
       COLUMBUS, OH.---Washington Prime Group Inc. (NYSE: WPG) has announced that Steel Valley Brew Works, a new, local brew and entertainment venue, will be one of several entertainment concepts to anchor redevelopment efforts at Southern Park Mall.
      Steel Valley Brew Works will overlook and connect to the 4-acre DeBartolo Commons, an outdoor athletic and entertainment green space and event venue that is expected to be complete during the second half of 2020. As previously announced, DeBartolo Commons will replace the former Sears location.
      Steel Valley Brew Works is a new-to-market concept of Joshua Langenheim, of Boardman, who is owner and operator of StoneFruit Coffee.
      Building on its expertise with coffee, Steel Valley Brew Works will occupy approximately 12,000 sq-ft of renovated space at Southern Park Mall, offering a huge selection of local craft beers, specialty coffee, baked goods, and a state-of-the-art coffee roasting facility. Steel Valley Brew Works will also feature indoor bocce courts, billiards, pinball, foosball, and other leisure games, providing guests an experience that can’t be found elsewhere in the area. In addition, Steel Valley Brew Works plans to periodically partner with food truck operators to bring the best local food trucks to its Southern Park Mall location.
      Joshua Langenheim, owner and operator of Steel Valley Brew Works and StoneFruit Coffee Company stated: “I am elated at the chance to bring Steel Valley Brew Works to life. I hear far too often that ‘there is no opportunity in the Mahoning Valley.’ Contrary, what I’ve learned is that opportunity isn’t handed out, it’s created.” said Langenheim.
      Washington Prime Group expects to announce additional entertainment anchors in the near future, including an indoor golf and entertainment venue and a popular, local restaurant that are expected to occupy distinct spaces within approximately 37,000 sq-ft of renovated space at Southern Park.
      The demolition of the former Sears building remains on schedule, and is expected to be complete in mid-December. The demolition of the former Sears Auto Center location has been complete. Ongoing construction traffic is not expected to impact guests visiting Southern Park Mall.
      Steel Valley Brew Works and additional entertainment anchors are expected to significantly increase guest traffic, benefitting existing tenants and generating strong future leasing demand for retail, dining, and entertainment uses. Most recently, Youngstown Clothing Company, a high-quality, vintage-inspired graphic t-shirt and apparel line, opened its permanent location at Southern Park Mall and now offers favorite Youngstown apparel year round.
      The renovation of Southern Park Mall will coincide with its 50th Anniversary in 2020 and honor the legacy of Edward J. DeBartolo Sr. and the DeBartolo-York family. A transformation is underway to strengthen Southern Park as the hub of retail, dining and entertainment in the area.
      “With plans to invest millions of dollars into the town center over the next several years, the long term vision for Southern Park Mall is reflective of the community. Plans have been thoughtfully put together with the Boardman community and Trustees, surrounding communities, and existing tenants,” Kim Green, vice-president of investor relations and corporate communication of WPG said.
