Can IKEA teach us how to create a thriving downtown?

(awesome video inside)

I know a lot of us want to see downtown succeed as a thriving hub for retail, commerce, and most importantly, people. Check out this video and share your thoughts on it. I see a lot of ideas that I think would translate well into how we plan/think about our downtown.

The professor giving the talk also has some interesting insight into the suburban mall model - maybe understanding that would help to find ways to combat the draining effect our nearby mall seems to have on our downtown?

Thoughts? Ideas?

I'm just a computer geek that has fallen in love with Tacoma.

So, what's almost as fun as sitting in front of a computer all day? Talking about the growth and development of a new Tacoma, duh!
