In the beginning, there was spawn. And it grew laggy due to the concentration of many shops and redstone devices. One fine day several of the server staff members put their heads together to try to do something about all this lagginess at spawn, and decided that if we built it, they would come. And by "it" they meant a super mall. Not just a super mall, but the One Mall, one mall to rule them all! Sorta like the One Ring, but without all those grubby little Hobbits. Oh, and no invisibility. Gollum is cool though, he can still come by the One Mall...
Anyhow, these intrepid staff players, aided by a certain God donor who shall remain nameless (not for any privacy or humility reasons, just because it sounds cooler that way), began to plan and build. Over the course of Labor Day Weekend (it's a US holiday, look it up), they um, well... labored... tirelessly until something truly wondrous emerged. After that thing passed, they returned to work on the mall.
At the end of the weekend, this tired little group looked with wonder upon their creation. What were they wondering? Most likely they were wondering why they wasted their three day weekend playing Minecraft obsessively, but that is beside the point. They saw before them an epic structure, 10 levels, 78 shop spaces, stretching from bedrock to the clouds. Realizing that there was no way they could possibly make it bigger without doing more work, they decided to leave it.
And so was born One Diamond Plaza - The One Mall. Are malls born? Maybe Hatched? Whatever, that's how it got to where it is at any rate...
The NEW Diamond Mall
On January 2, 2014, the original Diamond Mall was destroyed, and a new one was erected in its place. The new mall was no longer cylindrical, but, rather an odd geometric pattern, somewhat resembling a cloud. It was a new era in Minecraft malls, a brilliant feat. The content of old shops was brought to a platform high above the warp, for players to grab their old shops.
- All shops are individually protected by LionsArea, meaning that your shops cannot be griefed!
- A beautiful garden in the center of the mall, with bridges on the upper floors to get from one side of the mall to the other
- Monochromatic bands in the outside edge of the mall, made with Red Stained Clay, which looks really cool!
- No more underground! The mall is entirely above ground
- Much, much more
- Red Level
- Orange Level (empty)
- Yellow Level
- Lime Level
- GeekyCreeper's Shops [A,B and C]
- Green Level

- Magenta Level
NB: Names of shops may not actually be what the owners named them.

The original mall was conceived in a bid to many of the shops and services in Freedonia under one roof, and to try to relieve Spawn of any lag caused by the shop signs.
The new mall was created to improve on the legacy of the old one. It allowed for superior grief and robbery prevention, and looks really pretty
