That is the number of "housing units" developers are expecting to put in the Bee's Ferry Road/Glenn McConnell/Highway 61 corridor over the coming years. The new "downtown West Ashley" with Super WalMart as its hub.
Just the idea of Super WalMart as a hub for a downtown area is, in a word, appalling. How much lower can we as a nation sink in this swamp? We ain't even near bottom yet, I suspect. Money talks, art and culture and class walks.
I'd like to see two things come to pass. One: I would like for the developers of strip malls to be fined heavily if, after one year, any stores in their strip are unleased. With interest compounded daily for each day said store remains unleased.
Two: Developers must for a period of ten years live in and send their children to public school in the new housing developments they create. They must ride the same roads as the rest of us. They must have their children educated in over crowded schools with trailers, oops, I mean "mobile learning units", filling up every inch of what used to be the children's playground.
