Described the corridor to me why what do you see on on 71 B through Fayetteville when you’re driving down that road.
It’s a typical All-American highway through a city. It’s what created fair in a sense , is the first major road it hasn’t it very interesting history with the 19th and 20th century after a war war too when downtown started giving way to incremental development along corridors . The typical American city growth happen on 71 B which means side by side individual low density one story buildings and surface sparking individual access but it doesn’t create high degree a sense of place . People don’t think it’s all that memorable it’s useful its location for lots of iconic they’ll businesses is certainly not a bit basket case like some quarters around the country . It’s economically relatively viable in the future I I think we . We want , I take it from .
