What to Do With Japantown

New, 5 comments

The Japan Center: in a post about the "misanthropic" Federal Building, you nominated Japantown's indoor mall as another prime example of a people-hating building. The cranky old man of Geary Boulevard gets front page coverage today in a story that profiles its role as center of Japanese American communities, and of one of the country's three historic Japantowns. The planned revamp of the center, at one point envisioned to get turned inside out by developer 3-D, has been put on hold pending a more favorable economic climate. In the meantime, the brainstorm continues on how to sex up the "dead zone" that is Japantown. [SF Gate]
