I.HISTORICAL BACKGROUND

Many downtown commercial businesses have come


to the realization that they are not realizing the

maximum in cash receipts because of the


downtown traffic congestion and the overburden
on various means of public transportation. As a
result, many real estate promoters have grasped
the situation and are promoting shopping centers
in outlying suburban or rural areas were land
values are relatively lower, congestion is at a
minimum and where access roads and markets
surveys have broken out like a rash throughout the
country. Only a small percentage of these proposed
will be built, and many of these that are built will
eventually become blight on the are because of
poor solutions to, merchandising problems, or poor
design. For these and many other reasons, some
major departments stores are either initiating their
own shopping center plans, or are themselves
dictating the design as one of the prices of
participation.

lll. ARCHITECTURAL OBJECTIVES

A.A SUBURBAN SHOPPING CENTER


A shopping center is a modern, chiefly North
American, term for a form of shopping precinct
or shopping center, in which one or more
buildings form a complex of shops representing
merchandisers with interconnecting walkways
that enable customers to walk from unit to
unit.
A strip mall (also called a shopping
plaza, shopping center, or mini-mall) is an
open-air shopping mall where the stores are
arranged in a row, with a sidewalk in front.
Strip malls are typically developed as a unit
and have large parking lots in front. They face
major traffic arterials and tend to be selfcontained with few pedestrian connections to
surrounding neighborhoods.
A department store is a retail establishment
offering a wide range of consumer goods in
different product categories known as
"departments". In modern major cities, the
department store made a dramatic appearance
in the middle of the 19th century, and
permanently reshaped shopping habits, and
the definition of service and luxury.

Department stores today have sections that


sells the following clothing, furniture, home
appliances, toys, cosmetics, gardening,
toiletries, sporting goods, do it yourself, paint,
and hardware and additionally select other
lines of products such as food, books, jewelry,
electronics, stationery, photographic
equipment, baby products, and products for
pets. Customers out near the front of the store
or, alternatively, sales counters within each
department. Some are part of a retail chain of
many stores, while others may be independent
retailers. In the 1970s, they came under heavy
pressure from discounters.
