Hamlet (4/14)

    I wonder what DCA had to say about the mall in its sufficiency reviews. I wish I knew the person over there who is reviewing the DRI......

    Has anyone given thought that the Pinnacle should be renamed? I mean, there is the existing Cross Creek Square along CCSE between Apalachee and Park Ave. Seeing how the Pinnacle will be in a different part of town, shouldn't it be renamed to avoid confusion? Besides, the name "Pinnacle at Cross Creek" sounds sooooo stupid and pretentious. Pinnacle? Of what, bad planning?

    Florida, I'm going to have to disagree with you on this one. It's sprawl, plain and simple. Not all growth = sprawl, but this does. It's out in the hinterlands of this town, away from most development. If it was built at the edge of the city but near substantial development (i.e. along Capital Circle), it would not be a bad development. But it's a leapfrog development. And let's call it out for what it is: a shopping center. It's not anything particularly spectacular that would be a big loss to this town if it's not built, unlike something special (i.e. a zoo, airport, etc). Just another strip mall, which in that case, could be built in a number of places within the urban area. Yes, I am libertarian, and yes, I am pro-growth. But look at it this way. DeVoe Moore has a right to pursue development of his property, and the citizens have an equal right to protest the thing and not have it built. Oh yeah, and this thing will open up the sores placed in the community by Fallschase. You think Fallschase was controversial! The residents didn't like that, but they'll absolutely HATE this!

    That's all they said; didn't go into details. I'm not working on the project either........I do work in SW and NE Florida. I could probably find out who the planner is for Pinnacle. That said, I don't like how the project fronts I-10. I'd rather it front Mahan. Driving by on Mahan, you'd probably think it was just another small strip mall. I also don't like how it's so linear - it's going to discourage walking if anything. Nobody's going to want to walk from the theater to the stores at the other end.

    From what my co-workers at DCA have told me about me about Devoe's project, it's in trouble.

    I didn't care much for Broadway, but it is still sad to see the mall dying. But let's face it people, malls fail all the time; Tallahassee is no exception. I think the best thing that can be done for Tallahassee Mall is to raze it or convert it into an open-air, big box store "power center". As much as you might disagree, it's just following a nationwide trend of malls thriving, failing, then being converted into power centers. I say, it's better than a big empty mall.

    I never really liked the Dillards at the Tallahassee Mall.........the Governor's Square store seems to have a much better selection in clothing whenever I go in there. Part of the problem with the Tallahasee Mall is its size - it's only one level. Hardly any malls these days are one level unless they're spread out over a huge area (like Sawgrass Mills). Part of me thinks that it should be redeveloped into a lifestyle center, as is the fate of many a dead mall across the country. It'd be a better use for the land, and with Ross and the other store (can't think of the name, Shoe Carnival?) already detached from the mall, you have a start.
  9. Hey guys, Perhaps you may be remotely interested, but I just uploaded my newest website creation "Jason's Bus Page". It's my school bus hobby page, lots of pics of buses from the Tallahassee area. For those interested, the link is http://garnet.acns.fsu.edu/~jpl02/bus/index.html Tell me what you think! P.S. - there is a link to Urban Planet under my "links" section.

    Belk seems like a nice addition to the Tallahassee Mall. I've been in their stores before and they're nice. However, with this Parisian closing, that just leaves 2 left in Florida.....one at The Avenues in Jax and the Cordova Mall in Pensacola. I wonder if they'll be closing those stores as well.
  11. Ha ha! Khia is just nasty nasty. At least Trina has glamour to her. A friend of mine from back home told me to watch the "Hustlin'" video from Rick Ross. It has scenes from all around my 'hood, including this one corner store 3 blocks from my house. And who can't forget Carolmart (aka the Carol City Flea Market) and the CC Chiefs! Watchin it just feels like home
