Shopping Mall Sign: Regency Mall
Entrance sign (along with cinema listings) for Regency Mall, in Augusta, Georgia. While the above photo was taken in 2006, this dead mall has been long-abandoned and was never updated during its lifespan, so the sign you see here is frozen in time, still sporting its original 1970s look! Some design notes from Wikipedia:
"Regency Mall was configured in a Y-shaped layout. Its surrounding landscape was terraced, providing ground-level entrances to the upper and lower levels. The mall’s interior was decorated in an alabaster motif with brown accents, and its floors were finished in brown-speckled terrazzo tile. Live trees were planted at intervals along the lower-level concourses.Btw, take a look at my recent Randall Park Mall video (Ohio). Aside from the name of course, the entrance sign seen there looks identical to this one. Same developer, same era, so it makes sense, but still interesting to note.
The mall’s three wings met at a 28,000 square-foot center court, framed by 45-foot pillars and featuring a fountain, a 28-foot clock tower and a stage area floored in brown tile. Regency Mall had more than 800,000 square feet of space; when it opened, it was the largest enclosed shopping mall in Georgia."
