It would be a lot better if residents of these huge developments had places to walk to within their own neighborhoods/developments.
The Capri drive project does not and its not anything great in person. That could have easily been oriented to access Penrose Ave and allow for retail frontage on a very dead stretch of roadway. Instead its mediocrity...

At least the pier project has a few retail spaces.
