Pastel City

Blendini's second largest (and most vibrant) central business district

Historically, Pastel City grew out of the Blendini’s first era of economic prosperity. When the city was really starting to get its economic engine going, a taste for fun decadence emerged.

Pastel City’s buildings love to dress themselves up in delightfully eclectic exteriors. They also love to wear  headdresses and hats that thrill pedestrians looking up for blocks. But the buildings also love their headdresses for other reasons.

Pastel City’s buildings feel a strong sense of community with each other and with the people. I think that one reason for strong community ties is that the people encourage the buildings to be themselves and the buildings return the favor to the people.

As a result, a lot of cool business goes on in Pastel City. There is a lot of creativity in both arts and in the types of businesses that are around. There are a lot of pedestrian streets that feel human in scale. This also spurs the street arts. Many people in the clowning field that graduate from Clown College take advantage of Pastel City’s streets.

Pastel City’s economy is buoyed by the local business ventures that work with each other well. There are shops, music venues, theaters, workshops, small warehouses, and community spaces. There is a lot of generational wealth flowing in Pastel City.

In this scene of Pastel City, you can see the beachside motels that line the beach in this spot. Not pictured are the Pastel Ports which handle the bulk of trade going in and out of the neighborhood. Since there are ports along with recreation, Pastel City uses its lakefront for both economic and social purposes.
