Overall experience patterns of the 25 permanent pedestrian malls in the U. S. indicate that sales generally increase, some new construction is generated, and property values and subsequent tax revenues to the city have increased over pre-mail levels. A number of key elements in mall development are defined here as the need for adequate off-street parking, workable vehicular patterns around the mall, improved loading facilities, better merchandise and merchandising, and improved public transportation to and within the mall. Surveys of shoppers on the F Street Mall in Washington, D. C. reveal their feelings that shopping on F Street is safer than shopping in other parts of downtown. A pedestrian mall becomes especially worthy of consideration when cities realize that most of their other options for revitalizing their CBDs are becoming foreclosed. /DOT/
