Well, I'm not so sure. I thought that too, initially. However, I've been told that newer Neighborhood Markets tend to be in nicer areas. Talking to people, it looks like it's going to be more in line with these:

and this one in Dallas:

I have only experienced one of those Walmart "marketplace" types...in Vegas. Lets just say I pray for everyone living in the area it is NOT the same type of place. Then again, it WAS Vegas....

Just my .02, from living in Dallas...the neighborhood markets are nice. They sell food and HBA. No tires, no bikes, no curtains. They are bigger than Trader Joe's but smaller than your typical HEB. The few I have been in were impeccably clean and well-stocked. They are located in higher income areas up here....not the Dominion-type areas, of course, but at least upscale areas. I would not turn my nose up if one came to my neighborhood. I think you guys will be pleasantly surprised, as long as you take your HEB blinders off.

Well the major update is the new cost of the project!

On Tuesday, TxDOT and Bexar County Commissioners are learning that the entire project will have to return to the drawing board for a redesign that may cost taxpayers an additional $15 million to $20 million.

It's made national news a few times now. Mainly because of how absurd it is.
