Whither The Mall?

Architecture student and local blogger Dan sent me a link to his story about an very interesting concept for redeveloping the Laurel Mall.
This drawing shows a Bowie-like Open Town Center. It comes from a Woodbine, Maryland based, Seth Harry and Associates, an urban planning firm.
The drawing carries a 2005 date. I have no idea if the concept is now... or if it ever was being seriously considered. It's a very interesting concept nonetheless.
Dan's Just-Up-The-Pike blog is worth a visit.

Laurel mall will never compete as a mall with Arundel Mills and Columbia Mall, so it should be something else -- like a really huge theater complex with a monster-sized food court. It could be renamed "Date night in Laurel" or something.

Just a thought ...
