What Would Make Xanadu Meadowlands More Appealing?

One of the prominently-featured stories on the New York Times website today is about the ugliness of the design at Xanadu Meadowlands, the ill-fated entertainment/retail mega-complex in New Jersey. Various architecture experts offer their take on what should be done with the building, which never quite lived up to its original design plan. We'd be interested to hear from our readers what they think would help make the property more visually compelling.

We would also like to hear your thoughts on the fate of Xanadu Meadowlands overall. The project has passed through multiple developers in the past decade, never quite coming together. Do you think it has a future and what steps do you think should be taken to ensure the property's long-term success?
