Of course, there is a mall in Back Bay, but who's counting...

Seriously though, are they specifically trying to make the Waterfront the most boring neighborhood in the city? Did Hynes really go "Hey guys, I've got it! Let's put in the same exact stores everyone else in the country has! That'll make the visits of all those convention-goers oh so memorable! Boston is so on the map now." Between the car-centric traffic layout, the hordes of business casual out-of-towners, and now this, the Waterfront is well on its way to becoming a neighborhood the rest of the city won't have anything to do with. Oops.
