I think it’s great that there are new plans to develop the old mall site on the Golden Mile.

But the proposed name, “District 40,” brings to mind the numbered districts in the dystopian future portrayed in the “Hunger Games” movies.

I think they can do better.

Yeaaahhhh I wasn't identifying why I felt "meh" about the name...does sort of have a fragrance of cyclone fencing and serpentine wire


Those who are spending millions of dollars on the mall can name it whatever they want




Come to think of it, cyclone fencing is my favorite


Not if they want people to remember the name and patronize their new venture.


"District 40" is a fine name. Let's not look a gift horse in the mouth.


Platform seven and a half.


People wouldn't notice it if it had a name like that.
