Pandion. What can I say? It’s the largest city on Maritine Island, it’s the first city on the island to introduce mass transit, it’s an entertainment hub, and it has one of the largest CBD’s. In this post we will explore the history, attractions, and more of Pandion, the city of the sea.

Brief History

Pandion was built as a capital for Maritine Island and planned with large CBD featuring tall buildings to show how much the island had developed. The city quickly took off with a promise from John Maritine that people would not have to leave their city lifestyle behind if they moved to Pandion.

P&O cruises saw the potential for Pandion and built a port on the foreshore. The cruise benefited the city and surrounding area greatly, bringing in many tourists and after their holiday’s the tourists told their friends of the endless sandy white beaches, crystal water full of marine life and the other beautiful scenery; which brought even more tourists.

Because of the CBD’s location by the sea, residents and tourists were given a special experience to do their shopping whilst also being able to look out to the beautiful ocean. It was not long before companies started building high-rise buildings to give people the opportunity to have a wonderful view from their office or home.

The city continued to grow and grow and after parliament house had been built in Pandion, the city became known as the capital of Maritine Island.

An Entertainment Hub

Despite being the largest city on Maritine Island, Pandion had no entertainment, the residents were bored. But one year, a man called Michael Pesron emerged with a wonderful idea for a concert on a large patch of grass just out of the CBD. The citizens of Pandion as well as the council gave their full support and planning began.  After a few months of hard work and many calls, the concert could begin. Local bands performed and the concert was a rousing success with very happy residents and a profit made for the council. Michael suggested the concerts on the grass happen more often and so it did, it became more and more popular. A concert on the grass is now held every two weeks.

But a moderately sized concert featuring only local bands was not enough for the city. It needed a proper venue and the council foresaw more money if they built one. So an arena was built in the CBD, it named the Toyota Centre as Toyota was the largest sponsor for the building. Toyota Centre can seat 19, 300 people and has seen big names such as Black Eyed Peas, Britney Spears, and P!nk perform there.

Nightclubs also started appearing after the CBD grew larger. These have proven popular with the younger people of Pandion.

Transportation

Transportation is very important in Pandion. It was the first city on Maritine Island to introduce mass transit with the only mass transit company –Maritine Metro- coming from Pandion. The city is divided by highways and features busses, trains, a subway, monorail, and a new tram line throughout the CBD.

Wildel Mall

WIldel street was the place to go for shopping in Pandion, unfortunately that meant it was also the busiest street in Pandion. Traffic seemed to barely move at all and accidents occurred on the street every day. Residents grew tired of the traffic so the council came up with a solution; convert the street to a mall. So work began. The street was paved, trees were planted, banners were raised, shops were renovated, and the finished product was beautiful. Citizens describe it as one of the best ideas for the city. It absolutely necessary (not literally) that if you visit Pandion, you visit Wildel Mall.
