If a dead mall is brought back to life, does that make it a zombie mall?
Two things to consider:
1. There are a bunch of dead malls in Richmond. Tons of photo galleries of them exist online. To view these galleries is to embark on a journey of urban development, hope, and decay. Check out the RTD galleries here.
2. This story about the future of of the dead malls in Richmond is fascinating.
Suburban redevelopment could be huge for our region:
“Regional mall redevelopment … can be transformative for communities. We believe that this type of redevelopment has the potential to not only be profitable, but can also be catalytic in nature, facilitating additional growth and redevelopment within the surrounding area.”
