¡Que Colorifico!

Posted By on Fri, Nov 17, 2006 at 10:01 AM

Thankfully, downtown's La Placita won't be turning beige. The colorful palette was a bit jarring when it made its debut a few years ago, but it has grown on me, and, apparently, many other Tucsonans. Bourn Partners, which owns the complex, must have heard our collective groans when it announced earlier this year it planned to repaint the place. Reports at the time said they considered the garish colors weren't conducive to business. Maybe they've since realized La Placita didn't perform too well in its original beige, either. Since the location performs occasional duty as background for photos, I'll be interested in seeing how the new scheme works.
