Carlsbad Art and Antique Mall is No More
The sad news for many in Carlsbad is that this iconic collection of vendor booths for art, antiques, collectibles, and so much more - here for several decades - along with the Mas Fina Cantina, a yoga studio and a jewelry store, will be closing to make room for State Street Commons, a 21,000 SF upscale retail and restaurant center. I believe the mall itself is now closed (BTW these photos were taken in 2008).
As one can well imagine there is a bit of controversy over this new project that will significantly change the facade and interior of this mall, adding new faces to the growing hip and artsy North State area that seems to be constantly changing.
Stay tuned for more developments and updates as I get them.
