But that doesn't mean consolidation is over for mall REITs. Perhaps she most visible candidate for acquiring or being acquired is Bloomfield Hills, Michigan-based Taubman Centers, itself the target of two hostile takeover attempts in the past, one by Indianapolis-based Simon Properly, and the other by Westfield America, a unit of Australia's Westfield Group.
