Re: Best New Development Nominations

The Mandarin.

I neither love nor hate the architecture (certainly no worse than the much-ballyhooed Stern building on CPW). But it is the single best act of street-wall repair since we started...

Re: Downtown Crossing

How 'bout each store putting in its own canvas awning? Not as much protection, but it might be colorful and recall Washington St. of yore.
