Back in the mid-80's, I was living in Mesa Arizona and working at a brand new bank branch that sat on the outskirts of what was then a beautiful mall, Fiesta Mall.
The mall sat on a sort of low hill with parking encircling the building.
The parking lot was so full of cars all the time, that a few years after the mall opened they built this two-story parking garage to help reduce the congestion. I was out in this area recently and was shocked at what I saw here. Almost all the big stores have closed and the parking lot is a vast emptiness. I have no idea why this mall is dying. The residential neighborhoods around here appear to be stable. It's a little sad to see.
