NEW YORK CITY—The topic of malls came up a few times during our visit to the ICSC New York National Deal Making event, and the news was not good.  A few people we spoke with said once again that the American mall is dead. 

So, one more time, we had to ask PREIT CEO Joseph Coradino to explain why he believes otherwise. You’ll find his answer fascinating in the course of this exclusive video interview. But that’s not all we chatted about, and if you click on the link, you’ll also hear:

  • What’s driving the trend toward anchor consolidation;
  • How malls are embracing the “experience” as they redefine themselves;
  • Malls and the foreign retailer; and
  • What are the hot trends in the modern mall.
