(Six by Six, the Number of the Beast.)
The shrouding is now gone so feast your eyes upon Frisco’s newest shopping mall, 6×6 (The password for this site is amazonsucks, you know, possibly, just guessing here.)
Apparently, this glass box is going to Change Everything in Mid-Market.
Oh, here’s something, written by an out-of-towner who has no fucking idea what we’re dealing with here:
“Planned for a neglected center city block, Market Street Place aims to transform an economically underutilized area into a lively, safe and shopper-friendly neighborhood. This urban project will showcase five levels of retail, totaling 230,000 square feet. The façade combines layers of clear and translucent glass with mirror patterning that will capture fragmented images of the street life while giving a peek into the development’s interior activities. The exposed inner workings of the building are aimed at helping restore and revitalize the streetscape.”
Streetscape? Prose like this gags, non? When this place gets torn down and replaced, the new architect will talk about how terrible it was. Not that it is, but really it’s just a building, right? It’s not going to affect the situation on the ground all that much, right?
Anyway, we’ll see.
