The Gateway Mall's proposed redevelopment could end Springfield's long-standing authority to approve anchor tenants.

City leaders have never exercised that authority, but it was important to them when the mall was first proposed in 1988 because the area was coming out of a recession and city officials wanted guarantees that the proposed mall development wouldn’t turn into a “small set of uncoordinated strip malls,” said John Tamulonis, the city’s community development manager, who served in a similar position at the time the mall was being developed.

As The Register-Guard previously reported, the mall’s owner, New York-based Rouse Properties LLC, has submitted conceptual plans for a massive makeover of the enclosed mall .

The article raises questions about the descriptive value of disruption and innovation  — whether the terms are mere buzzwords or actually explain today's extraordinarily complex and fast changing business environment. 

Update: We caught up with Portland's Thomas Thurston, who shared his data driven take on the disruption controversy.
