Taubman and Macerich said their Plaza properties collectively are worth $209.7 million, according to opinion values filed in appeals of Jackson County’s 2023 assessments for 25 of their 28 parcels in the shopping center.

That would represent a 47.7% decrease from the $400.8 million total valuation Jackson County gave for the Plaza properties earlier this year, up from $328 million for the 2021-2022 assessment cycle.
