    Why are these all chain stores though? Why not put in some original/local flavor to make this place a destination that is special and makes it stand out as being a better destination than the typical big box parking lot sea?

    (As an aside, will this development be surrounded by a huge parking lot too, or will they use space efficiently so that there can be a walkable community located around it?)

    The point of transit-oriented-development is not to just put a station in a shopping mall, but to make the living, shopping, and transit all accessible by foot without the need or desire to ever get in a car at all.

    Why did Rich Haws not see his own vision through?

    No mention of condos/townhouses/apartments? Is there still nearby living space available?

    As a Farmington resident, I am very excited for this development to be done. It will be nice to have some stores, restaurants, and a movie theater in our city. Now we can go shopping or enjoy an evening out without having to go to Layton or Bountiful.

    I was born in 1960, they told us by 1976 we'd all be on the metric system, there would be flying cars by the year 2000... and steamrollers.

    I getting the kids together tonight and go watch them work.

    Steamrollers?

    That would be something to see!

    Whatever happened with the Renaissance Towne Centre project in Bountiful? Still lots of empty land there and plenty of people in that area.
