"Lifestyle centers" are a new type of mall/main street approach. As this video points out, however, they have several flaws such as:
- private control of crucial public space
- homogenous design
- replacement of local businesses for chains
- not fitting in with surrounding neighborhoods
- still centered around auto traffic
