Green Mall (Renewable Energy)
Life, Shopping, Tech
After years of delays, developers and local officials have agreed on a 30-year tax deal that will allow construction to start on Destiny USA — a megamall in Syracuse whose backers vow will run on renewable energy and be a model for clean living and shopping.
According to the lead developer of the complex, Robert Congel, the space will be the largest complex in the world run entirely on renewable energy. It will contain some 848,000 square feet of retail, dining, and entertainment space, and might be open as early as 2008.
