^^^ Yes, but the Aldi's should be redeveloped into a very large, very dense, mixed use TOD. It's right on top of the EL and the freeway and essentially the only site like that in the city. Everywhere else the El is either in the freeway, or a ways off the freeway. Therefore the Aldi site is almost somewhere that should have a couple of small highrises on it with massive amounts of retail in the base.
In other news related to this project, apparently it's a go because they've started demolition on this project as of this morning. Half of one of the industrial buildings on that site is already razed and they are going at it hard right now. Drove by just a few minutes ago.
PS: Was stalking around on JGMA's website and found this design for another UNO school:
Any idea if this is real or just an abandoned version of the UNO school that got built. I can't exactly place the site plan, but this is pretty freaking awesome looking.
PPS: Apparently this is the design for the UNO High School on 51st Street:

Looks like the High School will complement the Elementary school's stainless paneling with copper paneling. Looks like JGMA is taking their interesting landscaping and site plans a step further with the HS.
