The point of a mall is to bring a massive selection together under one roof. Following massive recent expansion, Westfield Southcenter does this in an unprecidented way.\r
In addition to featuring the typical mall-fodder stores, most of which feature women's apparel or jewelry, Westfield also features Borders Books, Music, & Cafe, a two-level shopping concourse which gives the centre an added element of spaciousness, and the inclusion of a nice AMC theatre (featuring IMAX) on the third level.\r
The parking lot is perfectly accessible from I-5 and I-405, and there is always plenty of unused parking space available. With The Cheesecake Factory in the parking lot, Target just across the street, easy access to Best Buy on the next block, and downtown Seattle or Bellevue only ten minutes away, location as well as selection makes Westfield Southcenter the difinitive location for shopping and dining in the Seattle-Tacoma metro region.\r
Security maintains a noticeable presence; teenager volume is standard, not visibly greater than other malls. The facility is generally clean and well-maintained.
Pros: Location, Atmosphere, Size, Parking, and AMC
Cons: One Empty Anchor
