This is the beginning of a mall. It's only a few hundred feet from our house and it's massive. This is only one side but I would say the finished structure would span roughly 4 or 5 city blocks. Huge.
It's not finished, clearly. And here's the kicker: it was started years ago. The story we've gotten is that there was some sort of financial dispute and construction was halted until it could all get sorted out. Then the recession started and the whole project apparently got scrapped.
And so the neighborhood is left with what the Mister and I lovingly call "The Skeleton."
