Abstract/Summary

The Burlington Mall is a regional shopping center located in Burlington, Massachusetts. About ten miles outside of Boston, it sits near the junction of Interstate 95 and Route 3. In the first few decades of Burlington’s explosive growth as a suburb, the mall was a magnet to shoppers and other developments that created its present day reputation as a shopping and employment hub. Today, it remains a landmark in the Greater Boston Area and puts suburban Burlington on the map. Conversely, regional indoor malls are losing favor as shoppers increasingly value the third place experience. This document will identify where there is a potential for improvement. In addition, all analyses and conclusions will be made into a workable site plan as an example for the future of the Burlington Mall Area.
