Although he's too old to be part of it, entrepreneur Shaheen Sadeghi has his finger on the pulse of bohemian America, consumers aged 18 through 29 and 40 million strong. When they go shopping, they want to get more for less, and he hopes to give it to them. Ergo, Costa Mesa's newest mall, which isn't really a mall at all.

Wearing round glasses, a buttoned vest and blue wingtip oxfords, Shaheen Sadeghi can't walk down Anaheim's Center Street Promenade without being greeted by every shop owner on this three-block stretch of newly opened restaurants and boutiques. He's the developer who transformed what was once a row of lackluster office buildings into his vision of retro-American retail opportunity, complete with all the telltales of new urbanism: baroque logos, penny tiles, wainscoting and Rockwellian facades.

Warner departed as chairman to become a consultant concentrating on Quiksilver's European division.

The Lab, developer Shaheen Sadeghi's retail experiment in Costa Mesa, is up and running. Sadeghi has described the retail development in an abandoned factory building as "an anti-mall." One retailer described it as a better trap to catch aging mall rats who are bored with traditional retailing. Urban Outfitters, the Philadelphia-based retailer that sells to younger consumers, opened more than two weeks ago. Tower Records opened its alternative music shop on Wednesday.

The Lab, which bills itself as an anti-mall, is letting it be known that it's decidedly pro-music. The shopping center that's built from an old defense industry plant on Bristol Street in Costa Mesa is hosting Classical Raves, a series of gatherings prior to Pacific Symphony concerts. The parties, which will be in the Lab's indoor/outdoor "living room," will start at 6 p.m. and be followed by 8 p.m. orchestra concerts at the Orange County Performing Arts Center.

We would like to add our voices to others from the Diamond/Crestview Tract 764 for the preservation of the health, safety and integrity of our neighborhood and city. It is with great apprehension that we see the city management listening to the will of landowners and developers to build over 125 homes in the steep hillsides surrounding our neighborhood. In purchasing our own home more than three years ago, we spent months selecting a quiet, woodsy environment akin to our native Michigan in which to raise a family.

The Planning Commission this week approved an organic farmers market that may open next month behind an unusual shopping center. Shaheen Sadeghi, owner of The LAB at 2930 Bristol St., said he would like to play host to up to 15 farmers on Tuesday afternoons. The farmers would set up stalls behind the collection of retail stores that make up The LAB to sell fruits and vegetables. The LAB opened earlier this year and was touted as an "anti-mall."
