    I agree the rents are absolutely dreadful. All of the shopping centers have noticeable vacancies for long periods. I'm shocked anyone can make any money. The developer greed is just nuts. I can't say I blame them. If an inexperienced person wants to blindly dump money into the hands of these overzealous leasing companies then nothing will change. Sadly unless the store owners all vanish the rents will continue to go up. I'm torn between supporting local businesses that are doomed to fail and staying away so that we see real change.

    It could be worse....there could be a small community hospital that would bring hundreds of jobs to the area or something.

    There was supposed to be a hospital across from Harris Teeter and if fell through. The businesses we lost like Anothai and Flat Bread were banking on it bringing lunch business

    It was to be next to the School Administration building and it didn't just fall through, Inova and some ill informed neighborhood people fought it and destroyed the opportunity. Property values around hospitals increase but because a few psych beds were planned people acted like they were putting a state psychiatric facility for the criminally insane.

    The hospital is now called StoneSpring and is under construction at Rtes 50/659.
