The Main Place Mall - What Gives?
What would it really take to recreate and re-brand the Main Street side of the Main Place Mall? While biking past 'the mall' last night I snapped a couple of photos of the mild disaster that we know as the Main Place Mall. In this day and age, how hard would it be to put a new treatment on that thing? Take down the cheesy awnings, put up some attractive signage, clean the windows, get the clutter away from the windows... there are some usable elements that could be incorporated into an entirely new look for the facade.
From what I understand, the Main Place Mall will be with us for quite a while. If you actually walk through it you will see that there is potential to showcase the few remaining shops to Main Street passersby. But at this point there are outdated signs (very bizarre) and outdated looking storefronts. This is not a million dollar project - and if the attempt to spruce up the mall's facade works, then maybe a new shop might move in.
