That future is already here.
Westfield Corporation is planning a city near Los Angeles called "New Century City". This city will include condominiums 40 to 47 stories high which are integrated with Macy's, AMC theaters, Bloomindales, and typical mall-like shopping places.
New Century City's corporate motto is "meet, mingle, shop, live." The mall will also be adjacent to a new FBI Headquarters office in L.A.
Experiments like Celebration, Florida, a similar kind of city owned by Disney, foretell a future where planned cities are owned and operated by corporations who can impose new order and new regulations at their own behest.
The New Century City.
