Hong Kong Mall-ification

Shopping malls in Hong Kong follow an approach to urban development dubbed HOPSCA, which are building complexes that contain hotels, offices, parks, shopping malls, clubs and apartments. Contrasted to the North American shopping malls surrounded by vast parking lots, HOPSCA developments are fully integrated into the transportation, communication and economic systems of highly dense urban cores. Developers in mainland China and around the world, including Miami and New York, are beginning to closely copy Hong Kong’s mall projects.
