They are considered both passe and declasse ... only teenagers go to them. Fashionable shopping streets have made a big comeback, and also specialized districts such as fashion districts and home design districts. Many people hate the acres of parking and the distances to walk to get to one of the shops.
That's all true, because we generally associate "malls" with the suburban kind.

But, big malls can (but rarely are) be very urban in nature as well. Look at the Toronto Eaton Centre (itself the largest mall in the world when built)...it is located right in the heart of downtown, on the street grid, with no surface parking, two subway stops right inside it. While 30 years old, it remains viable to this day with over 1 million visitors every week.

TEC is also just a part of PATH, which while is not a single owner/managed mall, is indeed one contiguous, connected indoor mall with 4 million square feet of retail space and growing. It also does not fit the usual "teenage hangout", as most of it services the hordes of workers in the office towers above it.

Shopping malls are called here in Brazil as Shopping Centers...or just "Shoppings"...
the biggest problems of building malls is the fact that your destroying the the luxuary stores of the streets, and the city becomes empty...this way of life ephasizes the private spaces not the public ones...turning the city more "closed", and inacessible...
but i agree that are some great points too, they can use the malls to creat development to degradeted areas too!

This has been posted before, but The Mall Of America's (MOA) expansion was approved by the city about two months ago, and will bring the size to nearly 10 million sq. feet (910,000 sq. meters).

The $1.8 billion Phase 2 will include a 4-level, 5.6 million square-foot expansion on 42 acres connected to the current MOA, and will also link to the existing IKEA. The developers estimate that the current 40 million visits per year will expand to 60 million when Phase 2 opens. (40 percent of those visitors come from a distance greater than 150 miles.)

All of the plans and diagrams can be found here on the City of Bloomington's website.

The project is approved and designs are well underway by KKE Architects of Minneapolis. A 300,000 sq. ft. Bass Pro Shop, Kimpton Hotel and a 6,000-seat performing arts center are in the mix, along with 450+ new stores added to the current 520. Here are some earlier concept drawings:
