The term 'de-mall' means different things to different people. "One version is the shopping center equivalent of a facelift, a complete reconfiguring of an enclosed mall to turn the stores out to face the street, usually for big-box tenants. The other type of de-malling entails 're-tenanting' an enclosed retail facility with offices and other mixed uses, essentially leaving a mall's retail past behind...To de-mall or not to de-mall often comes down to demand. Or the lack thereof."
