I was in Davis a couple years ago and drove by the mall. I just don't see how that mall is standing. It has to be one of the most low functioning malls I've ever seen. And it seems like it would just be more profitable to tear it down and build a power center since the city already is developing power centers.

You do realize it costs money to build those things, right? This ain't SimCity.

john2049: Yes--"the city" is not from Sacramento, and has a almost Zen-like powers of contracted consciouslessness. He has an endless curiosity about how shopping centers get built, but I think sometimes that he thinks they are awards granted to cities when they reach a certain population threshold.

Yes I'm aware the mall was not in Davis. And I am not talking about something happening right away. But in the near future, are their plans to redevelop the mall into a big box center?

I doubt it.

Petrovich Development opened a big box center in Woodland called the Woodland Gateway Center. If you look at the city planning department, you will notice that there are plans to expand the Woodland Gateway Center with a Woodland Gateway Center II. Basically I assume that the existence and planned expansion of the Woodland Gateway Center means that they won't be bulldozing the Woodland Mall to build another power center when the city already has the Woodland Gateway Center.

In terms of redevelopment projects in Woodland, I think Woodland's main street is more likely to be the center of future redevelopment projects. Downtown Woodland has good bones. The old Corner Drug store reeks with charm. There is the historic Court House, the Woodland Opera House and an old Carnegie Library. But between the mall and the power strip a lot of the retail vitality of downtown Woodland has ebbed. My hunch is that it will turn into an area with a lot of bars and restaurants.

That mall turning into a downtown project is possible. Hotels going downtown is a usual for cities.

I am not too keen with the retail environment of Woodland. But Im guessing they have Walmart, Target, Home Depot, Costco, and whats in the mall. That is still missing OSH, Lowe's, and Kohl's.

I'd say a movie theater, hotel, restaurants, local shops, and bars downtown is a great redevelopment idea.
