Nice for the 1990s maybe, but the mall-century is over

This is an unfortunate development. If we are to get serious about lower energy consumption then a(nother) colossal mall isn’t the way to go, nor any more parking lagoons. If it was made into a mini village area of 3-5 storey buildings then surface area green-roof with geothermal install would be amazing. This design though is 100% nuclear dependent and will not last. We need to build smarter. That would be a better investment.
