Question: What’s Best/Worst Features of Riverstone?

When the Movie Complex building was built, there was a beautiful parking lot that faced the front of the building. It was dramatic to park and walk up to the theatre. The parking lot was paved, curbed and tree lined making a dramatic entrance to the theatre. Now the parking lot is gone, it is torn up and a new building is being built directly in front of the theatre. It looks terrible. The theatre will now be hid from view. Plus the lot was only a couple of years old. Where is the parking lot — A parking structure was built to the northwest of the theatre, constructed in a hurry, no charm, just cement. From Northwest Blvd. going south, this huge, undescript slab of concrete greets people coming into Coeur d’ Alene. I would have thought a more eye pleasing piece of architecture would have been created to fit into the atmosphere of the Riverstone area. A better finish on the concrete to liven it up would have been so spectacular. Guess hurried up, finish, cheap looking concrete is the thing of the future.
