The "mall industry giants" include General Growth, which has focused on "retail, building and acquiring properties in middle markets," and Rouse Co., with "its ritzy suburban malls, its expansive planned communities, a legacy of pushing for social change and its urban 'festival marketplaces,'" including Harborplace in Baltimore.
