Tom Daykin Enjoys The Perfect Pabst Farms Lede
With dreams of an upscale mall dashed - - though the interchange that was supposed to be contingent on the never-built mall is open, with fancy roundabouts galore (see photos below) - - how else do you report this development 'development'?
A Walmart supermarket and discount store and Sam's Club store are being proposed for Oconomowoc's Pabst Farms site, where city officials had once hoped to see a regional mall developed.I took these photos about a year-and-a-half ago:
|I like the bike path (r). But that sign? Better slow down to interpret that.|
|Roundabouts - - four in all - - all about. The brickwork and landscaping are lovely.|
|Where's the holiday shopping traffic last Saturday afternoon? Oh, I forgot. The mall never got built.|
|Houses on Pabst Farms' former farmland|
They're very high class and sophisticated out in Oconomowoc. Just ask them.
But won't Oconomowocians (?) be grateful for all of those jobs created?
No need to build a Regional Mall when Wisconsin is shedding jobs.
