Your Next Office in the Mall

The mall is dead. Long live the mall. Creative destruction in business creates opportunities for alternatives. Logistics, Amazon in the mall, sure, why not?

Did you ever think maybe your medical office could do well in the mall? I don't know whether this will really be a thing, but imagine a cluster of medical offices and dental offices all around the mall. There's a network effect in business where there is a clustering of similar businesses, like the medical plaza. I wonder if the mall would work for medicine.
