Putting offices inside shopping centers leverages conventional wisdom that workers want to be near amenities like coffee, food, or a quick trip to the gym. As commercial renters are increasingly clamoring for built up amenities, malls have become an attractive option.
I enjoy these stories of creative destruction. Within reason, markets are efficient - not fair. Also, the idea of doing remote work from a place close to home but not home keeps getting more attractive every year for me.
