This is probably to actually get people to go over to the Marketplace more. The way the garages are set up, I always end up spending most of my time in Town Center or The Landing. I rarely make the trip over to Marketplace anymore unless I want Earl's.

It is much smaller in scope, so not really. But it is certainly a spin-off.
