Here is my point – Sam Adams, a California developer, plans to develop the barren Mt. Wayte Plaza into a mix of retail businesses, restaurants and office space. Its current name, Mt. Wayte has historical precedence but would not draw outsiders. “Uptown” gives no clue to the site’s offerings. Farm Pond Landing is a fitting name for its proximity to Farm Pond..

Combined with a new gateway to Farm Pond it could invigorate this part of town. What would you find more enticing – “Let’s meet Uptown” or “Let’s Meet at Farm Pond Landing” or eventually at the “Landing”?
