OGDEN ---- Madison Marquette Realty Services of Minneapolis will take over Feb. 1 as the new manager of the Ogden City Mall, an 800,331-square-foot shopping center located downtown.

Thomas Johnson, vice president of mall owner CIGNA, said the company decided it was time for a change when former mall manager Kevin Ireland of Tennessee-based CBL & Associates Properties Inc. left at the end of 1998.The Ogden mall has been struggling, and one of its anchor stores, Nordstrom, will close its doors for good on Sunday.

"We are grateful for everything that CBL & Associates has done for the center over the past two years," Johnson said in a press release. "But we chose Madison Marquette because they have a reputa-tion for creating special places."

Madison Marquette Realty Services manages 19 million square feet of office, industrial and retail space in 16 states.
