The rest of Atlanta's malls are pretty much standard sized suburban cookie cutter malls.

There is of course, the Mall of America in Minnesota which is the largest mall in the U.S., and the West Edmonton mall (http://www.westedmall.com/home/default.asp - broken link) in Alberta Canada which is the largest in North America if you're looking for "crazy huge" malls.
I would exclude Lenox Square and Phipps Plaza from that general description.
The expanded Neiman-Marcus at Lenox is fabulous BTW.

Note the keyword I used was "suburban" to describe the "cookie-cutter" description. Lenox and Phipps are intown malls. The malls in the burbs here though (with the exception of the Mall of Georgia) are pretty much cookie-cutter. Heck, the Simon company owns most of them, anyway!

phipps plaza is most certainly not your ordinary mall. it is very nice and the architecture fits the atmosphere of stores and shoppers. i'll admit that we have nothing like that here in texas. all the upscale shopping that's in atlanta is in texas, but the mall itself isn't comparable.
