There's somewhere between 1000 and 1400 people who live closer to this site than any other retail - and not counting anyone on the other side of Crowchild, which I think is a mentally impassable barrier. And it's a reasonably well-off area. I suspect a well curated coffee shop or diner type place could make a go of it. The nearest coffee shops are Marda Loop (other side of Crowchild again) and then 1 km west of the site on 26th or 1 km north on 17th. Obviously not as good a site as one actually facing 26th though.The retail would need to be destination type businesses. At least until the Chinook College site gets redeveloped.
