A North Main St. Shopping Center’s Change of Clothes


Visiting the former Mark’s Plaza shopping center at 4721 N. Main St. near the end of Airline Dr., reader Christopher Andrews notes that the new facade going up (top) appears to be headed in a slightly different direction than what was portrayed in the rendering (below) floated by Braun Enterprises after the serial shopping-center fixer-upper company bought the Norhill property and renamed it The Heights Place.

Among the new tenants promised for the center once it’s done: Foreign Correspondents, the restaurant the Treadsack Group had originally planned for Shepherd Dr.
