Shopping center addition
Originally uploaded by big mike - montana.
This building was constructed in 2005 in the parking lot of the Hastings/Osco shopping center on west Main Street.
The building has both bad and good effects on the streetscape. Bad: it presents its back to Main Street. Good: the back is not ugly, and the building hides an ugly parking area.
I visit the shopping area quite frequently (my gym and PO box are there). I like that the new addition increases retail density within town, thus potentially reducing commercial sprawl.
