These outdoor "lifestyle" retail centers are all the rage right now, across the country. They come in various shapes and forms (including 'downtown' centers, etc), but they generally contain the same type of lifestyle-oriented retailers (The Gap, Barnes and Noble, Movie Theaters, etc.). You now see a lot of major mall developers (Simon, etc.) building these outdoor centers in lieu of traditional indoor malls.
