From the very beginning, Colorado Boulevard was all about the car. Pasadena residents so loved their Ford Model Ts that in 1915 the city was said to have the highest rate of automobile ownership in the world. Colorado was a leg in the famed Route 66 and evolved along with the car culture, with roadside businesses giving way to bigger department stores and eventually to shopping centers. But these days, officials want to tame the famed street. Pasadena is considering plans to narrow portions of Colorado by as much as two lanes and use that space to widen sidewalks and create tiny parks with seating and greenery.

Paseo Colorado, the $130-million TrizecHahn retail development in downtown Pasadena, is yet another example of the now familiar formula: mixed-use urban malls that seek to replicate the experience of a real city. Designed--again--by Ehrenkrantz Eckstut & Kuhn Architects, this one is cloaked in a veneer of Spanish colonial imagery. But its essential features are indistinguishable from Hollywood & Highland: a multiplex theater, chain restaurants and rows and rows of shops.

When I heard the famous Milan restaurant Bice was opening a branch in Pasadena's new Paseo Colorado, my first thought was, "Why?" Bice had opened a high-profile Beverly Hills restaurant in 1989, which managed to hang on, just, for almost five years before closing. They want to try again? Even in Milan, Bice is beloved more for its elegant, old-fashioned ambience and solicitous waiters than for its rather staid food.

With the economy weakening and consumers shaken by terrorist attacks, developer TrizecHahn Corp. could scarcely have picked a worse time to open two giant shopping centers in the Los Angeles area. The projects--Paseo Colorado, which opened late last month in Pasadena, and Hollywood & Highland, which will debut next week--depend in part on a combination of high-end retail and tourism, two sectors that have been hard hit in recent months.

Ten years ago, Pasadena set out to revamp its aging civic center. The grand promenade once envisioned between the Civic Auditorium to the south and the Central Library to the north had been blocked by a shopping mall that by the 1990s was struggling. The landmark City Hall, the domed symbol of the city, was facing serious seismic issues. So the city embarked on a major face-lift for the area aimed in part at raising its stature.

A man of my acquaintance, in the state of what was once considered midlife, recently discovered that he had a few things to figure out. And it was decided by him and his wife of many years that it would be best for all concerned if he did this figuring out at an address other than the one they shared. Which is how he found himself living in a studio apartment above Macy's.
