Growth of anchor communities in malls

In the wake of anchor big-box stores leaving shopping malls comes the emergence of a new type of attractor: anchor communities. As some shopping malls explore the different ways they can repurpose themselves beyond retail, they are beginning to attract the communities that come with those new spaces. Such include the communities that belong to churches, sports clubs, cultural networks and the creative arts.
