    The site started in 1961 as “Fan Fair Discount City,” one of the first indoor shopping malls in the area. The building was a bit of an architectural marvel at the time because rather than using interior support beams to hold up its bulbous roof, it used exterior supports jutting from the sides of the building. That design meant lots of space inside the 118,000-square-foot building unencumbered by support columns.

    But even with all that space, the indoor mall didn’t last.

    In 1965, Fan Fair Discount City closed. Western Electric used the building until 1983, but the site has been empty and hasn’t seen any private investment since.

    A group of developers bought it in 1982 and renamed it “Fanfare.” City documents have since called the building “Fan Fare,” though the name remains a point of contention for many longtime residents.


    Demolished in 2013.

     Future Plans
    It is full of asbestos, and nobody wants to take the responsibility of cleaning it up. But as of May 2009, a golf course might use the site if they can get the plans approved to clean the area up.

    Demolished in 2013, the Aurora Urban Renewal Authority bought the site for $4M in March 2014.
