From the National Retail Market ReportThe era of the traditional shopping mall may be coming to an end, but that doesn’t mean developers are giving up on large-scale retail developments.

To confront the reality of e-commerce and continue to attract customers to brick-and-mortar establishments, some developers are building bigger and more extravagant shopping centers than ever before.

In addition to having a greater diversity of stores and restaurants, these next-generation malls are relying heavily on entertainment to drive sales. Using amusement parks and fashion shows as well as world-famous architects and celebrity chefs, the top retail developers are now selling an experience with retail present, and not the other way around.
