Al Manchar Mall to be demolished?!

i learned from desert girl blog that almanshar mall will be soon demolished - the 4 year old mall which hosts old souvenir shops will simply disappear and another mall will rise at the same place.

a friend told me that there's more to the story than what meets the eye - as you may know these souvenir shops were there before the mall and there was some kind of a deal when almanshar was erected and their rents did not change much - may be the only way to raise rents is by getting rid of these shops through a demolition project.

but i'm not buying this story, it is quite expensive to demolish a mall and erect another, is the exercise worth the return on investment?
