Greetings from Chelsea, Retail Hell

Regarding Friday's rant about development in Chelsea, a tipster points us to renderings of the project, noting that Winick Properties is offering two retail spaces for lease with occupancy in "fall 2007" (er, good luck with that). We're more taken, however, with the retail map included with the marketing materials, reproduced above. (Slogan sugestion: Chelsea—America's premier outdoor mall.) Amazingly, we count only one Starbucks. The horror.

Oh, for those who must: a sketch of the supremely bland 131 Eighth Avenue, on the other side of this link.
