“Dying Malls Get New Lease on Life”

As mall shopping dwindles, many spaces have been repurposed for similar multiple-room projects, such as community colleges, medical centers and churches, according to architecture critic Alexandra Lange, author of “Meet Me by the Fountain: An Inside History of the Mall.” One mall in Georgia was redone to become a hub for the Mexican American community, while one in Minnesota is being turned into apartments and a food hall. In some cases, the best possible choice is to remove the buildings entirely to reclaim green spaces, as was done at a mall in Connecticut, Lange says.
