Westfield has been trying to figure out what the hell to do with the Metreon since they acquired it in 2006. They stated last year that they would concentrate on making the Metreon a “food and culture” destination. In their defense, we saw them open a small farmer’s market on the property that has been well received. However, Tavern on the Green filed for Chapter 11 and announced that they would not be taking the fourth floor. Also, the Firewood Cafe closed in the food court on the ground level. Not good. The Metreon is still in decline.
The answer: open a Target on the second floor. An effing Target!? Stay tuned.
