Malls Aren’t Dying, Actually

March 31, 2015



Last week I wrote an article for CityLab arguing that the “dying malls” phenomenon is exaggerated—most American shopping malls are doing fine, and the higher-end ones are doing very well indeed.

The story got picked up by Monocle’s radio station in London. Yesterday, I talked to the host of The Monocle Daily about why those dead-mall photos are so powerful, and why building a big new shopping mall in Miami is not, in fact, a crazy idea. You can listen here if you like (the segment starts at about 27:40).
