    Hi from DC

    Hello Everyone!!
    Glad to have stumbled upon this great forum while researching "What to consider when building a Mall?".
    I am 24 years old with a dream of developing a shopping mall. As you can see from my age I cannot have enough experience to do so but what the hell, I am trying my best. hopefully in a decade I would have done it.

    I suggest that you contact a kid in San Louis Obispo and do everything the opposite. (Did I spell Louis right? Dammed my franco-american homeland!)

    Welcome from the Great State of Ohio! Although I think your dream to be unreasonable, I support the exuberance in which you seem to have about it. Good luck!

    Hello, from Dallas, TX!
    "We do not need any other Tutankhamun's tomb with all its treasures. We need context. We need understanding. We need knowledge of historical events to tie them together. We don't know much. Of course we know a lot, but it is context that's missing, not treasures." - Werner Herzog, in Archaeology, March/April 2011
