What moron granted the permit to build another "Emergency Room" crammed in the location
where Blockbuster was located? Where will the
patients park and what kind of traffic jam nightmare will it cause? We already have a nightmare with all the Starbuck addicts trying to turn in to get their precious coffee across traffic. Cannot even imagine trying to cram it in that spot!!

Traffic doesn't seem to be a problem. I don't know what their business model is, but being an emergency room I imagine they could be profitable with an average of 3 visits a day (I really don't know anything about their financing, just a uneducated guess.)

From observing the parking lot, I think Blockbuster had more foot traffic.

It's called capitalism. If you don't like it, don't patronize the business. If enough people feel the same way, the business will fail, and the popular vote wins.

You apparently don't know the laws. As long as the business is legal, the city can't do anything about it. Zoning restricts businesses by their type - which is designed to alleviate what you are concerned with. You also seem to lack intelligence. Based on your post, I assume you would rather the building sit empty and become a run-down eyesore over time. And you would probably complain about that. Technology (Red Box, Video Steaming ala Netflix, etc.) have all but rendered the Brick and Mortar Video Rental business obsolete. At least there is a business operating at the location, which increases the value, and thus increasing the amount of property tax contributed to the government coffers.

It's disappointing the facility doesn't take Medicare, being that it's right next to The Providence.
