    Photo request: terminating vista in new retail development

    I'm trying to hunt down an example of a terminating vista in a newish retail development (preferably a high-quality lifestyle center or similar project) as an example for a unified development code we're authoring. I've had no luck finding such an image in the Cyburbia Gallery or Creative Commons-license images on Flickr. Of course, you'll be given credit for the photo. Thanks!

    Dan, here's the entrance/termination of Pier Park. In the foreground in Front Beach Road which runs parallel to the Gulf. Beyond is the city's pier which is being reconstructed. Is this what you had in mind? Next time I'm out at the Beach, I'll try to get a better image.

    Well, I can do something like that. I was really looking for something that might terminate in a fountain, tower, prominent entrance or building, or something else, with the photo clearly showing that it is a shopping center of some sort. Thanks!
