This week, it's a Philadelphia story. The King of Prussia Mall has has more retail space than any other mall in the U.S. With another 140,000 square feet recently added, the mall  now totals over 2.9 million square feet.  Robert Hart and Kathy Smith of Simon Property Group walk James through the new expansion at the King of Prussia mall. 
After that, James also sits down with  Lauren Gilchrist, the head of Philadelphia research at JLL. Lauren explains how the city's downtown is revitalizing with new tech employers and young residents. New retailers are also opening doors in order to serve this market. Philly's suburbs are adding mixed use developments that make the 'burbs feel more like the city.
