Cabot Circus: Are you singing Happy Birthday?
There's hardly a Bristolian without an opinion on it.
Talk about quantitative easing and eyes may glaze. Raise the question of government-backed securities in Lloyds, and you may lose your audience. But tell people you're covering a shopping centre's first birthday party - and prepare for an earful.
The numbers are huge. £500m invested. Four thousand jobs. Twenty million shopping visits in a year.
We'll come to the thorny question of whether Cabot Circus is making any money later - and yes, your thoughts, experiences and opinions are very welcome here right now.
First though, the neighbours. Before I went inside the Circus, I had a look round the back. Where there are some mighty unhappy people.
"There's a hell of a lot missing," Patricia O'Reilly tells me. She lives in the flats behind the car park, and remembers talk of landscaping, a neighbourhood gathering place, their own parking spaces. Patricia's part of a local residents association, chaired by John James who feels promises have been broken.
"They came to lots of our meetings, showed us lots of improvements," he says. "Can you see it? Because I can't."
Now here's the thing. John and Patricia can't show us a piece of paper promising specific improvements that the developers have failed to deliver. They admit they were seduced by friendly talk that never got down to details. And of course, the area is better than it was.
"We do have regular liaison with local residents, a number of them I speak to on personal terms," James Bailey tells me. Mr Bailey is one of the centre managers at Cabot, and he doesn't think they've broken any promises.
But remember that price tag. £500m. Half a billion pounds. If they'd spent half of one percent of that on St Jude's, the place would win Britain in Bloom. As it is, there are a few shrubs and some new paving. A bit of new turf and a pole which, one day, will have a CCTV camera on it.
Many round here think the council was weak with the developers, so eager were they to get the flashy new shopping centre and its attendant jobs and glitz. And a neighbourhood that had been long neglected could only get better with a new megastore, couldn't it?
Developers are clever people. They know how to create an atmosphere in which everyone - locals, campaigners, councillors - think they are getting everything they could ever dream of. When you scrutinise the fine print, of course, it says "benches, landscaping and communal area". And is a square of paving stones a communal area? By the time the diggers are gone, everyone's just happy the dust has settled.
Whether you go inside the shops at all, Cabot has changed the city skyline for ever.
Better? Worse? Everyone has an opinion - let's hear yours now!
Tomorrow, Friday, they'll be having a birthday party. Will you be joining the celebrations?
Phil Gayle will be talking about Cabot too, on BBC Radio Bristol's Interactive, Friday morning from 9 - 10. Give him a call.
