Boston's 'Lifestyle Center' Trend
"A proposal for a low-rise mix of stores, restaurants, housing, and some offices, along with a public park, is in the midst of public hearings in Westborough.
Similar proposals are under discussion in Wayland and Berlin.
Lifestyle centers, which can feature many of the same stores as indoor malls, are meant to be pedestrian-friendly areas that encourage interaction among families or neighbors."
