Where is the older Wal-Mart?
Walmart was never on ridge. Sams club was.

Kroger is little better in that respect. Cincinnati is littered with abandoned and repurposed Kroger stores. Some from the last few decades are obvious due to the standardized designs, but some of the older ones are much harder to spot as they're quite small and nondescript. Has anyone ever tried to document those? I remember it coming up for discussion a while back, but it could've been at City-Data. Let's hope these Oakley developments don't end up going that way. Still, if it does happen, one saving grace is that these big box buildings are real easy to tear down, and with their sites already graded mostly flat, any sort of future redevelopment/densification will be much easier.
Anyways I am excited they are remodeling the Target down by Oakley Station. I got worried that when they opened the one in Blue Ash that it would be left to become decrepit and run down. Maybe Target doesn't subscribe to the Walmart model?
^ Still no where near thrilled about this project. So suburban, so car centric. But I am happy that they upped the apartments from 250 to 302 to increase the density.
I noticed a couple of days ago that a row of temporary electrical drops and meters were being constructed on the grounds of the former Precision Automated company (or whatever it was) on Ibsen, where the Kennedy Connector is planned. One assumes this is for construction trailers for the road building.
