Willow Grove Park Mall in Willow Grove, PA

Willow Grove Park Mall in Willow Grove, PA is distinguished by its rich history as a development on the site of a famed Victorian-era amusement park, which put the town of Willow Grove, Pennsylvania, on international maps. In its heyday, tens of thousands visited the Park daily to behold world-class concerts by such musical greats as John Philip Sousa, captivating colored Electric Fountain shows in the center of the Park’s expansive lake, and novel amusements, including roller coasters, toboggan rides and two magnificent carousels.

In 1982, the site was transformed into a thriving, fashion-forward shopping center, and the magic and excitement surrounding the original Park was reborn. Representational classic historical pieces, including a chiming carillon clock and a suspended fantasy carousel circling above a feature fountain, continue to be popular components of the mall’s décor and reminders of its vibrant heritage.

The Center’s recent Victorian-era inspired renovation was designed to echo the enchantment and elegance surrounding its ancestry. The renovation focal point, a new, spectacular Carousel ride, which mirrors the Park’s original Philadelphia Toboggan Company carousels, stands at the core of its own Third Level entrance and has delighted thousands of riders within its first few months of operations. The mall’s recently added fourth department store, Macy’s (the most fashion forward in the Philadelphia metro area), new multi-level parking deck with entrances to all three shopping levels, and redeveloped Grove Food Court featuring tables inlaid with original Willow Grove Park memorabilia, as well as the newly completed Nostaglic Mosaic Wall, build upon the excitement surrounding today’s Willow Grove Park.

France Meet FastMall – Les Quatres Temps in Paris, France and Forum des Halles in Paris, France Interactive Shopping Mall Maps Ready For Free Download.

Friday, April 30th, 2010

Les Quatres Temps in Paris, France at one time the largest retail center in Europe. In a project worth nearly $200 million, the renovation and expansion has given the center a coherent and contemporary image that offers retailers ample space for merchandising on the facade and within its shopping areas.

The showcase element of the expansion is a new building, Le Dome. There, a central mast supports the steel and glass roof of the building through tensile cables. The central space has no structural pylons creating an open central hall. In a hat tip to the city, the mast sits at a seven-degree angle — the same angle at which the Louvre and Grande Arche intersect the Champs-Élysées.

Forum des Halles, Paris, France is a large park and underground shopping center in the center of Paris. It is the former site of the famous Halles, the open markets immortalized by Émile Zola in Le ventre de Paris.

For eight hundred years, this area was the central market for Paris. Initially it included businesses of all types, but by the 1500s, it had specialized in just food. Over time, it got more and more crowded, and by the 1900s, it was becoming a serious logistical problem. As a result, in 1969, the markets were moved to a vast area in the suburb of Rungis, very near Orly Airport to the south. A big empty space was left in this spot after the markets moved, and it was more or less a big hole for years (in fact, it was nicknamed le trou des Halles—the hole of the Halles—by the natives in consequence).

After quite a few years, it was finally decided to transform the “hole” into what it is today, namely, a large and pretty park on the surface, a huge underground shopping center beneath that, and the world’s largest underground subway station beneath that (the Châtelet-les-Halles station).
