Clearly you were not aware. There is a significant difference in visibility between Carolina Place, which you thought I was talking about, and The Centrum, which I was referring to in my response to the comment above.
Furthermore, if you’ve ever been involved in commercial real estate, one of the key features you look for in a property (and is almost always mentioned in listings) is road frontage and visibility. Is the the ONLY factor for success of a business/tenant? Of course not; nobody is arguing that. It does, however play a role and is one of my key criticisms of development in CLT in general. Trees are great, but a lot of first time visitors think we’re in a damn forest when I’m bringing around town.
Not that we would still have Kmart.
