Nothing new added to the city, but it's great to see something happen with these parcels. I'm a little worried about what will happen with the mall, though. Obviously this area couldn't really support the mall pre-Katrina, so I'm interested to see how they will try to attract retailers. Also, the mall probably needs better connections to surrounding buildings... that whole area is a maze of parking garages and skywalks right now.

Hopefully the shifting of state offices into Dominion Tower won't impact the construction plans for the other state building a few blocks away. I can just see the state tearing down a building, expecting to replace it, then completely change direction and move into a different building, leaving yet another giant hole in the cityscape.
