Super-Sized Centers

When you’re looking to expand your specialty retail business or launch a new one, it helps to know where to look. The malls with the biggest gross leasable space might be a good place to start—mainly because their sheer size makes them a destination for shoppers. Here is a list of centers in North America with the highest GLA—compiled exclusively for Specialty Retail Report by Directory of Major Malls.

There are many indicators for success in specialty retail and customer traffic is one of them. Centers with high gross leasable space typically attract more traffic than smaller ones. This list complied by the Directory of Major Malls helps find them.

SRC = Super-Regional Center; RC = Regional Center; LSC = Lifestyle/Specialty Center
