Readers: Blue is Favorite of Six Plaza Square Colors

January 13, 2016 Downtown, Planning & Design, Real Estate No Comments

Blue was the favorite Plaza Square color picked by readers in the non-scientific Sunday Poll, with orange second.   Readers were allowed to pick two. Blue & orange are also my top two favorites, though I prefer orange over blue.

Q: The six Plaza Square buildings were restored to their original colors, which are your TWO favorites?

#1 Blue with 18 votes (27.69%)

#5 Yellow with 7 votes (10.77%)
#5 Yellow with 7 votes (10.77%)
#6 Mustard with 5 votes (7.69%)
#6 Mustard with 5 votes (7.69%)

Yellow, which finished fifth, is a close third favorite of mine.

As I said on Sunday, I thought the colors were originally used on the North & South ends but the National Register listing says they were always white.

The white ends just do not look right to my eyes

Though I like a lot about these six buildings, they make no attempt to connect to Olive, Pine, or Chestnut. With Pine & Chestnut being a one-way couplet they’re horrible places for pedestrians, There is zero positive street activity.

Hopefully they’ll do better now that ownership, mission, etc are split up.
