Thread: New Strip Mall

  1. #1

    Default New Strip Mall

    Yippie, More trees knocked down in Edmond for another strip mall.
    On Covell, between Sooner and Coltrane.

    I hope they put up 6 more stoplights to control traffic around it.

    You're missing out.

    lets get the retail space that is already built and empty rented first, then we can build some new ones.

    for instance: the retail space north of 150th (33rd) and Western is beautiful, incredible, premium and very, very available.

    That is not the Edmond way. It is build first or destroy nature and then cover with pavement. Wallah! Wal-Mart, and no more hill.

    I'm another one whose life doesn't include Edmond on any regular basis.
    That fact alone is enough to justify my belief in a higher power.

    That says more about the poster than Edmond.

    For a city with a tree as it's logo, Edmond sure hates trees.

    Oh give me a break. I complain, but you will find things you don't like in a lot of places. I'm not sure what it is that you are saying is a reason to not live in Edmond, but I rather think you'll find strip malls in any city.

    Or maybe they haven't figured out how to build stuff on TOP of trees yet, so they have to remove them...maybe you can figure that one out for us.

    i think i'd rather enjoy visiting a business built in the top of trees in swiss-family-robison style....

    It's not rocket science. It's quite easy.

    They did a fine job on the first Spring Creek development.

    Contrast the former forest turned desolate wasteland between 2nd and 15th west of I-35 to the church on the east side. It can be done...but only when someones gives a crap.


    And for the record, I grew up in Edmond.

    gee thanks, I care.

    I think it most cases in neighborhoods and such nowadays, they do try to keep the trees. As bad as you think it is, it is certainly not as bad as in the 80's and early 90s - you go into those neighborhoods it is all new growth...SOME of the newer ones are better at leaving what was there.

    Also of note, Edmond didn't originally have the trees that it has now (or anywhere near that) as I understand it....so I'd think there wouldn't be anything criminal with taking some of them down again.

    I thought it was an old wives' tale that there are no trailer parks in Edmond, but I've seen them! They're hidden, so I think that's why they've been able to escape the rath of the snobby Edmonites.

  20. Default Re: New Strip Mall

    wow.

    bitter.

    People who think Edmondites are all snobby obviously do not know people from there. Its a myth that keeps getting perpetuated by people who don't live there.

    I live and edmond and love it. Don't understand where all the hatred comes from

    Regarding snobs, Norman is 100X worse than Edmond.

    Default Re: New Strip Mall

    Yes!

    Default Re: New Strip Mall

    I'm sure there are snobs anywhere. I'd say that most of the snobby people in Edmond moved there from somewhere else. My family goes back to the Landrun being in Edmond and isn't rich or snobby.
