What, you're not fond of box-stores built as a streetwall but facing away from the sidewalk?

While I admit the featureless stucco walls and giant signs are certainly eye catching, there's something uncomforting about taking my life into my hands just to go to get groceries at Metro. I don't even dare go back to the Food Pavilion as it requires a carefully synchronized dash across 2 busy parking lots and a drive thru lane.

I wouldn't have held Sam so accountable for that massive screw up if he didn't tout it as a pedestrian friendly, urban design when it was still a proposal. That was just a straight up lie. There is not ONE building on the entire property that is street facing or without a parking lot guarded entryway.
