Why is anybody building any retail in any suburban area right now. This country is so overbuilt with suburban retail and it's just now starting to get corrected and we are going to have millions more sq ft of vacant retail in the next year or so. Kansas is still STAR bonding new retail construction in Overland Park. Absolutely asinine. Figure out how to fill up zona rosa and redevelop metro north mall's land. Nothing else should happen north of the river till that happens.

Oak Park Mall will be mostly empty and have lost all of its anchors within two years. Mark my words. There is zero reason or demand to be building new retail in most suburban areas and to subsidize new retail construction with tax money, especially in affluent suburban areas, is just off the charts stupid. It's one of the reasons this country is in such bad shape. Our infrastructure and transit and medical care is shit, but we give developers tax breaks to build retail we don't need which causes more stress on infrastructure more decay and blight due to abandoned structures and more suburban sprawl as people flee to the "new" parts of suburbs.

This is quickly correcting itself and that graph does not even include all the vacant retail in America.

I've never understood the rationale for using tax incentives for retail developments in suburbia. It really does the city no good at all. The jobs created are generally low paying and the profit doesn't get re-invested in the city, it leaves the metro and goes back to the home office of the various retail companies. If the demand was there, the retail would be there but even relatively new Zona Rosa cannot even keep tenants casting doubt on demand. I guess it does generate property and sales tax but unless residents are routinely leaving the jurisdiction to shop elsewhere, the city is just making it more difficult for the existing tax base to compete with newer tax exempt retail.
