In a move that monetizes the real estate value of one of its prime locations, embattled Sears Holdings Corp. announced Thursday it would carve up and share its King of Prussia mall anchor with retailer Dick's Sporting Goods. Terms of its sublease were not disclosed, nor was a time frame for when Dick's would move in. But Sears said it would continue operating its department store on the first floor of the two-story, 215,000-square-foot anchor at the East Coast's largest shopping mall, and that Dick's would occupy parts of the second level.

The towering black wall has been impossible to miss. Rising from shiny, white floor tiles at the East Coast's largest shopping mall, it has projected a cloak of mystery all the more stark for being a short walk from Louis Vuitton, Hermes, and Neiman Marcus - stores forbidding for their prices, if not their facades. For months, the black monolith has broadcast nothing to shoppers at the Plaza at King of Prussia. Not even the benign nugget of history that behind it once hummed a now-defunct John Wanamaker department store.

Rashivar Karnati didn't know. He shared an apartment in San Jose, Calif., with Raghunandan Yandamuri in 2011, but could recall only one time his roommate visited a casino in Reno. Chendu Tummala had met Yandamuri years earlier in undergraduate school in India. Long after both men moved to the United States, they still hewed to Indian traditions and would never have discussed Yandamuri's gambling problem. "Asking financial information is not a good thing," Tummala told me. "We didn't even know he had filed for bankruptcy.

Upper Merion Township supervisors have voted unanimously to approve a $13 million settlement of legal wrangling over the former Valley Forge Golf Course, the last undeveloped tract in King of Prussia. The deal, approved Thursday night, calls for the township to pay $1 million to the former property owner, the Hankin Family Partnership. The Hankin family went to court almost three decades ago, insisting it had the right to sell to a developer. The township refused to rezone the agriculturally zoned tract for higher-density development.

With the grand opening Tuesday of the Brandywine Valley Specialty Care and Ambulatory Surgery Center in Glen Mills, the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia has completed a trifecta of suburban outpatient centers this year. CHOP spent more than $100 million on the three specialty care and outpatient surgery facilities, including those that opened in King of Prussia during the summer and in Plainsboro, N.J., last winter. The most expensive by far was the 135,000-square-foot facility in King of Prussia, which had a total cost of $65 million.

I THOROUGHLY enjoy Solomon Jones' Saturday columns. They are refreshing, real and a great reminder about situations that fit into everyday lives, help bring stressful moments into perspective, and are great to relax with over a cup of coffee. Drew M. Brochet Sr. King of Prussia
