Let Him Entertain You
"Over the last 15 years, Cordish has developed over a dozen such projects, including the Power Plant, in Baltimore, Bayou Place, in Houston and Trapper's Alley, in Detroit. His latest, the 400,000-square-foot The Walk, in Atlantic City, N.J., will open this fall. 'What we provide,' says Cordish, 'Is a true entertainment district, with live venues and anchors, as opposed to a collection of small vendors. People are not going to drive an hour for a shoe store or dress store. What they want is real entertainment.' What follows are Cordish's thoughts on what works, what doesn't and the evolving nature of this kind of development."
