History

The mall has undergone several renovations and expansions over the past 50 years. Green Hills Shopping Center opened in the early 1950s and originally operated as an open-air strip mall. In the late 1960s, a Castner Knott store opened along with a newly-constructed, yet small, enclosed area. Cain-Sloan (which became Dillard's in 1987) also opened a stand-alone store at the west end of the mall. In doing so, Green Hills became the first new locations for both Nashville-based retailers, who had both previously only operated their downtown stores. Both would eventually expand to the far suburbs, along with locations elsewhere in Tennessee and neighboring states before being merged into larger chains.

Through the late 1980s and early 1990s, the mall's largest expansion to date was constructed, connecting the enclosed mall to Dillard's and adding a food court adjacent to Castner Knott. In the process of expansion, most of the stores with exterior entrances were closed or moved into the enclosed mall. The mall's Walgreens store moved to a new stand-alone building a block away, and its former slot became occupied by Carrabba's. The food court's restaurants failed to attract substantial business, and within a few years, the area was converted into more shops after most restaurants vacated. A coffee shop, cookie retailer, and pretzel kiosk remain. In the newest mall expansion, however, Bronte Bistro (inside Davis-Kidd), Panera Bread, and The Cheesecake Factory joined Carrabba's as the mall's full-service restaurants. All can be accessed by external entrances.

In 1998, a new development emerged adjacent to the mall, including a health club and a Regal Cinemas 16-screen megaplex. Regal also opened an indoor amusement park, "FunScape", which closed in 2000 when Regal pulled the plug on the concept. That space was converted into offices. The health club, named The Club, closed in 2007 and its building was converted to office space. Meanwhile, Castner Knott became Proffitt's, and later Hecht's.

A new Hecht's store was built in 2004 adjacent to the former food court, allowing the former department store building to be demolished for another mall expansion. The new space opened in 2005 and featured more mall space and the return of junior anchor Davis-Kidd Booksellers, which left the mall for a nearby building in 1986. In November 2010, Davis-Kidd's parent company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy and announced that the Nashville store was one of four locations that would be closed. The Green Hills Davis-Kidd Booksellers closed in late December 2010. Hecht's became Macy's in 2006.

A brand new Nordstrom store, Tennessee's first, opened in 2011 next to Dillard's at the mall's main entrance facing Abbott Martin Road.
