What are some the Least populated cities and areas with lifestyle centers?

Do the small cities reflect the size or do wealthy people keep the center big?

Lifestyle center is code word for strip mall with parking in the rear and apts that sure do seem like a real urban environment except devoid of life - why "life"style center seems so ironic

I moved from philly to DC after college years and at first though wow this is cool, then it occured to me; this is amazingly generic and forced, DC has a ton of lifestyle centers, at first they seem great then they suck out your soul

Bring back malls. Lifestyle centers are awful, and the rent is so high they have few if any stores selling anything worth buying.

Carmel, Corte Madera, Monterey, and Emeryville I think are the smallest cities. I was hoping that my nearby city of Paso Robles would get one, but I don't think we have enough wealthy residents to support one yet. And Monterey and all those other ones are near larger population centers though.

Ha ha. I just looked up one. Middleton, Wi which is kinda far from Madison. Small lifestyle center and Middleton has around 30,000 population. But yeah let's avoid naming suburbs of big cities.

Anyways, I am just so depressed that my nearby city's plans for a lifestyle center have been crushed because of this economy.

So I am stuck with the college-town and it's influence. No suburbia cities here

Emeryville is not a suburb. Its daytime population doubles to 20,000 because its a major employment center as the location of Pixar animation studios, the world HQ of Jamba Juice, not to mention a host of biotech, financial and retail companies.

But I get yer point.
