Just some background information: This area is home to some of the most affluent neighborhoods in America. It is nothing like the typical decaying places that many of these videos are located. The current state of the mall is due to changed shopping patterns and competition from MANY other high end malls in the area.
Some of these malls include: Tysons Corner (largest mall in the state and one of the largest in America), Tysons Corner Galleria (features very expensive name brands), Fair Oaks, Potomac Mills, Springfield Town Center, Pentagon City, etc.
Many of these malls are very modern and almost all of them have had complete face lifts or have been completely renovated. The fact that this area can host so many shopping malls in a time where many are closing is baffling. Well actually not baffling considering 6 of the 10 most wealthiest jurisdictions are in this area.
As for Landmark Mall, reconstruction has been slowed down by the mall’s two anchors (Sears and Macys). They have agreed for the new plans to be more of an open type mall but must remain open during all of construction; therefore, slowing the process. More information can be found on the Washington Post. – Nick Martin
