Walmart and other big-box stores belong on Memorial Drive, not on Glenwood. A grocery store, small retail, small office, small restaurants, small night club, etc. would fit better.
I like Edgewood Retail District just fine - though I wish there were more sidewalks - but this site is not the place for that.
Put a retail development next door to an existing apartment complex and to my mind you have mixed retail/residential development. I do have some concern about traffic and the developer's less than satisfactory accommodation of pedestrians at his previous developments, but overall am pleased. I've been waiting for something like Edgewood Retail District closer to my home in Grant Park.
