Brindle has coined for Old Towne, an enclosed shopping mall now under construction at Hawthorne and Del Amo Blvds. in Torrance. More than 140 shops will line both sides of a winding main street paved in antiqued brick with continuous entertainment and more than 40 restaurants to "make shopping fun." Directly inside the main entrance and bisecting the main street will be an antique merry-go-round. At,the south end of the mall will be a "frog amphitheater" with puppet shows and cartoon festivals, while the other end will be marked by an ornate gazebo in which the costumed Old Towne Band will perform live music. .Roving entertainers, including jazz bands and barbershop singers, will perform along the street and from balconies. - .. ; . .: ' "We're creating nostalgia," Brindle said, 'but not too authentic. We're all nostalgic for the bid days but it wasn't all pretty! "We're staying true to the spirit but it will be all bright and fresh none of the dismal feeling of so much of the real yesterday, not a slum." Opening is set for Sept. 18. The "shell" alone, including the storefronts, hand-fired brick paving, inerry-go-round, gazebo, theater and buildings, will cost an estimated $9.5 million. r4 . . "By the time the merchants complete their interiors, put in their furnishings and fixtures and stock I he stores, Old Towne will be a $30 million development," Brindle said. : About 70 of the mall stores have already been , leased, according to Mik Brindle, the developer's son and leasing agent for the project. -' Architectural design was by Jenkins & Griest Architects -of Pasadena. General contractor is the Ralph W. Evans Co. Developer is Lincoln Realty-Old Town, a partnership of developers Brindle and Clifford A. Hemmerling with Southern California Financial Corp. .
