The cities are looking forward to the time the region's largest shopping mall can be redeveloped."

Dewey's, Graeter's to anchor new West Side retail development

As we lose shopping malls, are we losing something sacred?
"Is a shopping mall a sacred place? Not a question often asked. The provocative documentary 'Malls R Us' seriously argues that malls serve similar functions today that cathedrals, temples, parliaments, arenas and town squares did in earlier times. Then the film slowly works its way around to the possibility that they may be a plague upon the Earth."

Portrait of a Dead Mall
"The ominous hum of the Segway’s electric motor filled my ear as a Cincinnati Mall security guard rode her mighty steed beside me, leading me towards the mall exit. I had been 'asked to leave' and they were going to make damn sure I didn’t provoke any more 'security concerns' with my picture taking ever again."

Q&A With Jason Roberts, the Brains Behind “Better Blocks”
"People will ask us, where do you typically go when you go to a city. And these days, what we’ll do is we’ll pull up the old streetcar maps. Because most U.S. cities had streetcars. If you go to those old streetcar neighborhoods, there’s oftentimes a cluster of commercial buildings nestled into the neighborhoods. Those are ready-made to be the neighborhood destinations. Those are where your grandparents shopped. You’d go to the butcher or the baker, get their groceries. They’re really built for walkability because of their proximity as well to the neighborhood."

The jobless future
"Buying things locally for immediate gratification will be a premium service because it is far more efficient — in terms of inventory cost, real estate, staffing — to consolidate and fulfill merchandise at a distance."
