The Metropolitan Development Commission has given its blessing to a new CVS store along 82nd Street just east of Interstate 69. The 12,900-square-foot store will replace two of the 10 one-story office buildings that now occupy the 7-acre site at 8202 Clearvista Parkway. The property owner, Regency Centre Investments Inc., won the board's approval despite a recommendation for denial from the city's planning staff. Regency made several concessions to planners and neighborhood groups, including switching the primary building material to brick from EIFS, or external insulation finishing system, and adding more sidewalks. The planning staff wanted the developer to move the CVS closer to 82nd Street to save mature trees in the existing office building's courtyard and to lower windows to at or below eye level as a security feature.

  • Well, Dr. Aziz ought to be thrilled. Yes, we need another CVS, yessir. With only 5 CVS stores, plus 4 Walgreens, 3 Krogers, 3 Marsh's, a Meijer and a WalMart within three miles of this location, it's like a veritable drugstore wilderness out there.
  • I actually think this is kind of cool. Ok it's a CVS so how exciting can this be? But I think it will be better than what is there now. They are using brick, adding sidewalks. You think Walgreens is looking at buying those places across the street?
  • Is What It Is
    These areas need larger scale planning efforts that have actual authority at some level if a real "place" is going to happen. Upgrades to individual outlots are just too inhibited by the broader context they're in - especially how they are all bordered by heavy through traffic and disconnected subdivisions. This is very difficult to change incrementally.

  2. We are a nation of speed. All of our younger lives are filled with deadlines, quotas and bottom lines. We start to ease out of the pressured rat-race when we finally see "retirement." The most enjoyable travel on the planet is passenger rail service. Indy to Chicago does not beat Megabus or Southwest Airlines in speed. Passenger rail however has the best seating, mammoth legroon, seat backs that recline to more than 45 degrees and employers that really want you to return as a customer. Indiana municipalities need to maintain subsidies to support this transportation mode. Losing it is loss for all of us.
