On Target: a critic examines Metreon 2.0

Saturday, May 7, 2011

image That’s a classic lede on John King’s (pay-walled) architecture review of the soon-to-be remade Metreon in today’s Chronicle:

There’s a rich cultural yarn in the saga of San Francisco’s Metreon, about how a gimmicky and failed world unto itself will be reborn as a place designed to draw strength from the city around it.

Goodbye, virtual bowling alley. Hello, Target!

Add: In fairness, King likes a lot of what mall developer Westfield Group is doing at the Metreon. But the headline gives a clue: “New Metreon boxed in by old mistakes.”
