A large mall went defunct in my area a few years ago. The city spent many millions to buy the property, with the promise of it being converted into a movie studio, park area, etc. Lots of big promises by city council. The only thing that actually happened was the owner got bailed out of his bad investment, the city spent a bunch of $$$, the mall was used as a SWAT and military training playground for a while and then was demolished. The land has sat empty since and hosts swap meets on the weekends. A fine appropriation of millions of taxpayer money, for sure. It'll probably end up being turned into yet another agenda 21/2030 stack and pack apartment complex at some point. I'd expect the same sort of story for the rest of the malls that go under in the near future.
