Carlossuarez46 (User:Carlossuarez46) 20:10, 5 April 2006 (UTC) *I'd personally have to go with the '''delete''' side. I think there's a too-high degree of subjectivity involved, and a too-low degree of verifiability. Plus I just don't think it's that important, and while I may be wrong I don't think WP has ever established a consensus that all shopping malls are legitimately notable. For what it's worth, the only mall on here that I could speak to at all (Whitby Mall in Whitby, Ontario) is one that I don't think would merit an article even if it ''weren't'' on some people's subjective lists of "distressed" malls. Bottom line, this just doesn't strike me as being a particularly notable or encyclopedic list.
