Yesterday the planners of Montgomery County agreed to approve the plans for White Flint Mall that aim to turn those acres into a much less depressing place in the hopes people might actually want to go there. The mega-project will bring millions of square feet of apartments, office space for the masses, and a new elementary school to accommodate the surge in population that comes along with new living spaces.
