I think that is great for Banchetto! They will do better there I bet. The thing I don't get is the tearing down oof the mall..... why not take that money that is due to be "invested" (as if it will really go all the way through and become a mall and not abandoned) so you take 1/2 that money to be invested and give special deals for rent to get some good anchor stores and restaraunts that arent in the sinking mall. the idea being unless you have those stores that the other doesnt have..... I don't care what you build it isn't gonna make it. someone tell them...cut the rent for 1 or 2 years and get some new stores in....

The mall has strong bones [architecturally], I mean. It is a shame that they are tearing the majority of it down to build this open-air concept. Not that I am against the open-air concept (they have such a concept implemented at the Cross-County Center in Yonkers, and [at least to my knowledge], it has been pretty successful). However, I still think tearing down the majority of the mall (save Sears and Macys) is a pretty drastic measure. Maybe it is the environmentalist/conservationist in me, but perhaps they could have done a lot better by merely enhancing/tweaking the beauty that was already there (eg: implementing green technologies to reduce the carbon footprint of the structure, therefore updating the mall). Then again, it is probably too late, as they have started demolition.
