The most interesting part of the story was that Giant hasn't found financing or a partner to move forward. The reason that they are evicting Sullivans and the other tenants is that a completely vacant site will be more attactive to investors. But if they don't find any, the community may be left with two vacant blocks. Hopefully not, but Giant kept the stores south of its supermarket empty for the last 10 years.
