Southglenn Mall -- Urban Design in Suburbia
In Spring of 2006, Southglenn mall is going to be demolished (except for Foley's and Sears, which plan to stay open) and reworked into The Streets at Southglenn, now with urban design.
Energized and filled with shaded walkways and private spaces for relaxing, The Streets at Southglenn will be casually eclectic and activated with festivals, concerts and other community events.It's a good start. But how's the public transportation?
The Streets at Southglenn will feature a gourmet natural foods market, a movie theater, bookstore, European bistros, sidewalk cafés, and unique women’s and men’s apparel, which are just a few examples of the types of places that will help create an up-market, community-based destination...with 950,000 square feet of retail and 350 loft residences.
(I just checked the bus schedule. I can't get to either Southglenn or Park Meadows by bus unless I go at 7 in the morning and stay until 4 in the afternoon.)
