Right. But that wasn't the question.

There are plenty of malls in the country that are nicer than Phipps. If there's one thing Arizona, Florida, and Southern California knows how to do, it's malls.

According to their website Phipps is home to Nordstrom, Niketown, and several other stores where average (whatever that means) people shop. Also, there are plenty of 30K millionaires in the Atlanta area, as there are anywhere, who patronize even the most exclusive stores in Phipps, regardless of whether or not they can really afford what they're purchasing.

This is right in the middle of skyscrapers not out in the middle of nowhere - they need two separate buildings. If you combine Lenox and Phipps they contain 2.32 million sq. ft. and would be the 7th largest in America.
Right, but Lenox and Phipps are two different malls. Therefore, no Atlanta area malls qualify as having the nation's largest floorspace.

Not true at all. You have clearly never been Rodeo Drive, 5th Avenue, Scottsdale Fashion Square, Michigan Avenue, Worth Avenue, South Coast Plaza, or any of the major casinos in Vegas.

I don't doubt that all of those malls you listed are nice, I just know that they're far from the nicest in the country.

But in atlanta there are so many 14 are 15 different suburban malls

but i like cumberland mall ( for sneakers and forever 21 mens section)
South Dekalb (for sneakers)
town center for ( Heritage 1981 store and The BUckle)
And Mall Of Ga ( for its Armani Exchange store and H&M and Nordstroms)
Perimeter Mall (for Bloomingdales, Nordstroms , Zara, Metropark,Martin& osa and Betsey johnson) and these are suburban malls Perimeter mall just 5 mins from lenox offering almost the same selection of stuff the only mall really far is Mall of Georgia
I was being sarcastic and the Galleria looks very nice on the inside, and not to include the William's Tower.

Also, they forget that lots of shopping areas have more stores around them. The Galleria area in Houston has tons of other stores outside the mall. The mall alone includes more than 375 stores. On the outside your talking about over 200 more stores.

btw, the Galleria is 2.4 million sq ft so we would still be the 7th largest mall in america.

If we were talking about "upscale" I think Miami South FLA area would win regional for the south, and if we were talking about overall NYC LA CHI-TOWN would be the top 3 then the rest below them.

Galleria is a BEAST. It's huge. I think it's bigger then Philipps and Lennox.

Wow I didnt know the Houston Galleria is that big. It has been awhile since I have been there so maybe it has grown. I know the Katy Mills mall is humongous. I am wondering how big that is?

I don't know metro have the highest number, but Chicago metro is up there. You have Woodfield mall, Gurnee Mills, Oak Brook Center, Orland Square, some in the city(Chicago), and other suburbs.
