There are lot's of poor people downtown who would love a Walmart or a Target within walking distance. We could keep big boxes out without keeping big box out, but I think there's room for big stores downtown even if there isn't a business case. Once there were a number of "big" department stores downtown. The old Eaton's was awesome, you could buy a tailored suit, a watch, a TV or a grand piano. I mean the elevator had an attendant, how cool is that.

In theory, the cost per square foot should keep most big retail stores out of the core.
