Wegmans Saga Part Seven

click to enlarge

Today I learned that Wegmans has now received the critical Site Development Plan approval for their planned store at the intersection of Snowden River Parkway and McGaw Road in Columbia. They need this approval before they can apply for a building permit.

If you want to see some interesting computer generated renderings of the building and the parking structure, check out the SDP application on the county website. I liked this elevation because it gives you some idea how the redeveloped property will look when you are actually driving by it. You can find the SDP application, with exhibits, here. It’s a big file though so it may require a little patience.

I like the way that the building is divided into sections so it doesn't look like one big box. But it has a very traditional, almost a colonial, look that doesn't fit very well into Columbia.

I am just glad that Wegman's is coming. I love their selection and it's a long haul up to Hunt Valley...

Although I like Wegmans, I think they could have chosen somewhere else outside of Columbia. I don't like how all of these retail stores and stuff are popping up all over Columbia.

I wish Wegman's was coming into the town center. It would fit perfect with the mall and and office all around. Residents could work, shop eat with out getting into their cars.

Wegman is a great place to shop. It has everything under one roof. One can spend all day there. I hope they have plenty of parking at this location. I've been to other Wegman's in the region. There is always no parking and lots of traffic getting in and out.
