These plans go through because the design is generic and low cost and economic success of the project is virtually guaranteed. Builders build like this because they know they can fill the retail space with the usual generic chain stores, who in turn know that they will bring in customers. If people were discerning in their shopping habits, those conditions would not be in place. We have to live with this garbage because the general public supports it. Look at the recent turnaround of Queenston mall for example. They did the same thing there, and people love it. It's as Kunstler said, people don't always get what they expect, but they get what they deserve.

I'm just glad there's no VIA station in that diagram.
