Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

This book is the first to cover a booming new field of real estate: Greyfield malls. Greyfields are dead malls, obsolete retail centers, failed shopping centers. New urbanist developers and designers are turning these eyesores into thriving neighborhoods. This book shows why they do it, how the financing and design works, and what the opportunities are.

If you are in a region with a failed shopping mall, this book will give you a new perspective on what your area could be.

How to make an obsolete retail property vital again. Case studies on demalling the shopping center. Short but informative-a good value. I'd like to know if these concepts work in cold weather climates. Most examples presented are from warm weather states.
