I think Brooks v Martinez mudwrestling could be a good fundraiser. : )

I can't see how a 2-story Target would be any worse than the giant vacant mall sitting there. But that could just be me.

Fries: does Chik-A-Fil cook their chicken in the same vat with fries? I don't want Chicken Waffle Fries.

Target: I can't think of much that can be worse for a neighborhood than dust storms from vacant lots and empty deserted malls. I'm not necessarily in favor of big business and big box stores generally. The area had been on the decline until UpTown I, but it seems the whole Louisiana / Menaul / Lomas / Central corridor has been "commercial" for a long time. I'm sure some neighbors would welcome the convenience of more shopping. It a'int happening downtown thats for sure and the Rapid Ride ( which should go back to a more frequent and later schedule ) make it more practical for bus people to shop. What practical solutions are the opponents offering up? A shuttle service around the commercial areas would be a plus and cut down on pedestrians having to cross busy intersections. Do the opponents want the near vacant mall torn down? They want a park? Can the City afford a park and police it?

Making up Snow Days After Memorial Day: Fine with me.

Free fries in Chicken oil: Fine with me.

Two-story Target in Uptown: Fine with me.

Judge: Corrupt.

Brooks & Martinez: Corrupt. (Victims of a corrupt system/complacency with corruption and cronyism?)

Local Blues Bands: Fine with me.

Would there be the same outcry to a 165,000sf Nordstrom?  Somehow, I think not.

Empty dirt lot contributes to the cozy, neighborhood feel? Please. Put in the Target. I guarantee the majority of the folks from the surrounding area will shop there, especially considering it will have a grocery section.

The link about the Uptown Target says there will be a grocery in store. I am guessing the store is part of a long term plan for the mall site and uptown.

The Target is not on the mall site.  It is part of the Hunt "Q" development.  North of Indian School.

@ Jeff - That is my recollection too.  And for the record, it wasn't a two story hotel, more like 12 with the top floors as residential condos.
