This is a terrible use of the property and they neighborhood was clearly tricked but I don't understand legally how it is TC's fault that absolutely no one bothered to read the actual zoning application that clearly allowed big box retail or asked any questions.
First rule of zoning is if the zoning allows it assume it will happen no matter what pretty renders they show you.
Yes, that building was torn down but the rest of the complex right at the intersection of Haskell and 75 Hwy is still standing... The rendering up above seems to show the corner the current buildings are on.

Completely auto oriented and no connection to the Cityplace developments or surrounding neighborhood, pathetic sidewalks too. It would not be hard to tweak this though, and make it have a more pedestrian friendly and a more attractive street level presence. The very vocal neighborhood that defeated TC and Sam's should work with the developer on this issue. I'm sure they know more about this plan than we do at this point.

But you're right, In-N-Out basically played the same game until someone on this board came across an agenda item for the Garland City Council which specifically had them listed. So who knows!

Last night was the first night they were all on. They were white, but I'm assuming they have the ability to change colors.
