I always wondered why there wasn't greater use of windows on the 14th Street frontage of the former Virgin Megastore. Aside from the marquee above the door and a couple of underutilized windows, the Virgin was much like a large cave. Not so with the new Nordstrom Rack that is scheduled to open on May 11th, 2010. Behind the plywood erected a couple of months ago, construction crews have been busy blowing out walls and replacing them with a tall wall of glass. The addition of windows will not only make for a more logical retail space, but add life this busy, yet formerly stark block.
