Urbane big box photo gallery

Spring has sprung in Chicago, so I've taken the chance to update and expand an online photo gallery of big(ger) box stores around the country that are designed in an "urban," pedestrian friendly way. Next time a big chain retailer tells you that "no, it can't be done," you can respond "yes, it can, and in fact, it has."

One caveat is that almost all of these photographs were taken in very high density neighborhoods, where land values are very high and where many customers will not drive to the store. More car-dependent areas will necessarily require more (and more prominent) parking.
