    The sidewalks from Yard Street end after the Get Go, if you look at the last plan you see that the ‘narrow strips’ in the parking lot have trees planted in them.

    To get to GE from those sidewalks you would have to cross a street and then walk in it around the planted bushes and trees at the ‘T’ part and then cut down a parking lot lane.

    They are adding sidewalks to Edgehill and I assume that would be the preferred pedestrian entrance.

    Do you have facts to back this up?

    Your opinion, on looking “cheap or fake”. I’m sure many people do not think “everything in the suburbs looks so cheap or fake”.

    Do you have facts to back this up? Or is this another one of your opinions?

    Again, your opinion not based on facts.

    Again, your opinion.

    What bothers me about these posts are people making blanket statments about areas (and other items in general) that are not true, nor based on fact, and only based on one’s opinion. I respect people’s viewpoints, but they are just that…viewpoints, neither right nor wrong and they do not represent how everyone views it. That’s how this post and many more, come across.

    Great post!

    What about it looks good? Other than plentiful parking and a huge setback with outlots w/drive-thrus? Is that what looks good?

    It reminds me of the Kroger on Chambers. I do not think it is much different in layout.

    Realistically, I think the most impact will be from having a 90,000 sq ft store so close to the expanding downtown area markets.

    I work in the construction industry and the lifespan of most throw up commercial buildings is 15 years or less. It’s a pretty well known fact in the industry.

    The statement about international cities is correct. Maybe not EVERYONE wants our towns and cities to be like Europe, Asia, S America, but a vast majority desire that type of community here in the states.

    BS. Just trying to pass more of your opinion as factual.

    I agree with JeepGirl, ColumbusMike and a few other posts on here have been simply bullshit. I for one want NONE of the European or Asian style living … I think our living is far and away better than any of that shit. If you want to live on top of one another in a 400 sq ft flat with a murphy bed move over there. Personally with the European debt crisis which makes our problems look like chicken shit I don’t want to model their spending patterns either. Austerity sucks people.

    I hope Giant Eagle pulls out and you can have your vacant lot.

    Cleaning the inside of office buildings does not constitute construction work.

    I will wager a bet that the cheap construction of the commercial shopping strip in New Albany where the Rusty Bucket, Starbucks etc… is at will last well more years than 15.

    the lack of class runs in both directions on this board and in many of the threads. There was a post where “HeyCasey” I think that was his screenname posted something to the effect “cheap shit is ok in the suburbs they just don’t care”. Really … did you call that post out as “classy”. I don’t think so.

    If it’s too hard to read on the first page is says that 756 parking “stalls” are provided in the plan out of the 990 permitted.

    Looks like the 990 parking spaces are for the entire site including the future retail along 3rd. It appears the Get Go gas station will be built at the same time as the grocery, which makes sense. According to this plan, the sidewalk ends after the retail on 3rd.

    Of course not. But as far as trends, materials, recoup costs, 15 years is pretty standard. That’s why most commercial property use inefficient hvac systems because upfront costs rule and defered maintenance and system costs are passed to the next owner. It’s a disturbing use of land, materials, and cheap unskilled labor, but that’s the reality of the current system.
