I don't see how any large retail center can survive in that area, even with public support. I originally thought perhaps Apple employees can grab their lunch or dinner there, but then I realized they'll get top notch meals inside their campus.
...and Cupertino voted "no" on revitalizing Valco :/ I don't get the other negatives in the area, seems fine whenever I'm in the area, but the abandoned mall stinks.
I've been noticing around the vacinity that any dead retail space gets converted to apartments, condos, and town homes. I'm assuming that will be the fate of the land that Valco sits on?
