People driving or walking around Brand Boulevard and Broadway in downtown Glendale are seeing something unusual — a giant green cube on the southwest corner of the intersection.

The exterior of the building where a Bloomingdale's store is being built is covered with a green mesh fabric to prevent dust and debris from leaving the construction area and falling onto pedestrians and passing vehicles, according to Shoshana Puccia, senior marketing manager for the Galleria.

The department store, which is slated for an autumn opening, is moving into the Galleria in the former Mervyn's site.

The 120,000-square-foot Bloomingdale's will be the company's eighth store in Southern California.
