    I so wish they’d rethought the thing they put up on the SW corner (is it retail? is it an office building? Apartments? No, it’s all three in the worst mish mash ever!)

  2. The Crossways on the N/E corner is equally horrible and depressing. I think it might be built on an old graveyard.

      No kidding – the “mall” is particularly depressing….
