South Carrollton/South Claiborne Walgreen's Redevelopment: Two Site Plan Design Alternatives

Gonna keep this one short y sweet . . .

The South Carrollton/South Claiborne Walgreen's Redevelopment issue goes back before the City Council today. I don't have any sure indication of what is going to transpire in the council chambers, BUT . . . let me offer not one, but two alternate site plans courtesy of Carrollton resident/architect Rodney Dionisio that more appropriately provide for both drug store and grocery store uses. I personally prefer the efficiency of Alternative 2.

Team Walgreens, please seriously consider such design alternatives more compatible with the urban characteristics of the site location. Be the hero.

Alternative 1. Surface parking only.

Alternative 2. Surface parking and rooftop parking upon grocery structure.

Any chance of getting larger scale images or better full size PDF's so we can read them?

They don't have it in 'em. Everywhere I travel there appears to be just one formula for Walgreens. They love corners, they love to have parking out front, they love obnoxious red signs, they love strip malls, they are part of the problem.

This just in from City Council - The Walgreens variance issue has been deferred until Sept 7. Walgreens has informed Shelley Midura that they will under no circumstances obey the city's zoning laws and rufuses to offer any compromises that will. Then get lost Walgreens, and give up your lease to some other entity that respects our city and will develop the site in a manner that respects our city and it's people.
