Where are regional malls, super regional malls, and lifestyle centers built?
What determines the site selection for cities, location in cities, and tenets in the malls?
For cities, I am going to guess who has a 150,000 population within a 5-15 mile radius according to ICSC definition. I heard my urban planning major friend that they also go in communities with higher population density to get more car traffic.
For site selection I am going to guess for old malls, they were usually found in central business districts. Now, I am guessing in cheap land near a freeway.
I am guessing tenets are determined by demographics. The income in the area, and the population in the area.
