bakery square

we have new digs in town


this place comes with some interesting history

it used to be a nabisco plant

***
as i understand it
it was built in 1918
and apparently lasted until 1998
when it closed for good

***

the property changed hands a few times,

was found to have loads of environmental issues
asbestos,
underground dangerous chemicals
and a host of basically bad stuff,

but eventually ended up being redeveloped 
into what it is today



an awesome new hipster complex
which house the likes of google and anthropology 
***

it was built with a lot of 'green' ideology and 
 has been awarded a platinum rating for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design certification by the U.S. Green Building Council

***

actually kind of a big deal

 and basically cool to look at







 

gotta love a place with recycle trash cans everywhere

* * * *

anthro is way out of my price range
but i love their decorating style



all the expensive antiques inside 
and this is their doorstop !

right up my alley


new ~ old floors...wonder where they came from




 their displays are actually for sale
(well....if you're loaded)


 i have fallen in love with this sink...

it would be perfect for my 'farmette'



but alas..the $12,000 price tag was just a tad over my budget
(in fact...almost as much as i paid for the house !)







i got tossed out of anthro 

 it appears they do not like photos being taken of their 'style'
the not so kind manager claims

but still a cool place to visit
and their style is worth seeing
and great inspiration

***
the whole 'square' is rather interesting

they say they will create over 1,600 jobs
which is great !

very urban, very trendy



 and it's certainly not everywhere 
that you see a truck like this in the parking lot

***

well...theres a ulterior motive reason for this post
other than local history



we scored this great venue for the

i made it !
for the holidays
 dec 2 & 3rd !!
 

 juNxtaposition will be there !!
