Malls are closing down and I have an idea...Submitted by P. Nicholson on Fri, 04/25/2014 - 20:26
Why couldn't malls in the midwest be redeveloped? Imagine being able to offer a client 5000 sq ft of space...?
The pro's would be that it was contained. In the midwest we deal with weather so bad that it can kill you. So cold.. that any exposed skin is in pain when the wind blows.
The other pro is that malls are big. It could literally have a residential section and a business section. Being able to offer someone a blank canvas that they build out is a plus. Those spaces are designed to make sure that the entire interior can be built out for each tenant.
What do y'all think? How much does a closed down mall cost? Is there a way to catch one right as it closes? What legal hoops?
The irony? I bet there are so many regulations and govt assholes to deal with that it makes it unreal to the average person to deal with.
