    Thanks, Dailun.

    Have always wondered what it was when going by, but never remembered to investigate, lol.

    I've noticed that a few times in Andrew Neeme's vlogs, and also seen it when getting a cab to the UFC.

    I asked a worker downtown and they said its a place where they have conventions for home furnishings, flooring, that sort of stuff.

    My wife and I went in there a few years ago just to see what could be in such a large place. I'd read on the internet that it had gone through a bankruptcy after being built and not generating the interest expected by the developers. No doubt whoever owns it now picked it up for a small fraction of the original cost. It's got designer collections of furnishings and interiors, but at least when we were there it didn't appear that there's much foot traffic. I think they rely primarily on the conventions. Being an employee for any of the showrooms looked like it would make for a really long day most of the time.

    It is a huge furniture and furnishings display/sale mostly for vendors and merchandisers. The public, however, is welcome.
