Golden Ghetto Mission Gateway Gurus Tout Silly Luxury Apartments Above Walmart

Linked to this overrated community blog simply because it offers a bit of proof that our suburban politicos and developers are just clueless as their urban core counterparts concocting taxpayer subsidized schemes that are doomed to FAIL. Here's the roundup written with even less pizazz than a Steve Vockrodt think piece . . . If that's possible: Latest Mission Gateway plan heads to planning commission Monday, now with apartments above Walmart

Luxury apartments above a WalMart!
And at great taxpayer expense.
You just can't make this stuff up.
Hahahahahaha!!

a big box store or zone would kill, not revive, mission commercially and residentially in my opinion.

on the other hand, a well done mixed use project with a hotel, apartments, restaurants, and so on eould revve snd energize mission.

it's about time to turn this great location over to somene else if they can't follow through.

This is a farce!

Mission screwed up when they allowed a nice little shopping center to be torn down for a pie in the sky development. Maybe Mission will get the county to make a park out of it like Prairie Village conned the county into doing with the ex-golf course.

This is a great idea. Tony's gay coon sweeties can steal right where they live.

Walmart and luxury just DO NOT COMPUTE, unless it's the Forbes listing of Sam's billionaire heirs.

So, will there be a daily lot sweep machine to vac up those diapers, motor oil bottles, beer cans, and such? What about soundproofing for when those muffler-missing rides idle away waiting for slow shopping granny? Oh, don't forget good filtration to clear the frequent diesel delivery fumes and the smells from overflowed trash cans.

That lot has water problems. Return it to nature, a park with a well stocked fishing lake, a collection of native trees etc.
An observation tower / restaurant
would take Mission from great to greater as a community to envy.

All the cultural attractions of living in a trailer park, but with electric-gate security.
