The Street reports that Wells Fargo actually bought the property from itself. The bank had foreclosed on the shopping mall a year ago and bought it to gain more control.

According to Trib News, the mall is still open for business, but is only approximately 55% occupied. Sears left the mall in 2015.

The Galleria was recently appraised at about $11 million dollars, down from $190 million.
