Our own Country Club Plaza, same building, 1966 and today:
If only the JC Company had, all those years ago, had the wisdom to know they should mandate that all buildings maintain their original Spanish style architecture on the outside.
The properties would all look FAR better now and all this time, from its creation to now, it would maintain the look throughout the Plaza--wouldn't that make sense?--and the property values would unequivocally be even higher than they are now I think it can easily be argued.
So it goes.
Old JC Nichols had brilliant ideas for himself, his company, his buildings and the city but he missed out on this one.
