A storage unit in glorified office complex with a supermarket? And yes the issue of a flood plain is big. There has been issues with over building everywhere. If you are near water wether it be a creek or river and building near can cause issues.

It also sounds like the supermarket owner is going to get some upgrades for free courtesy of the landlord. State road is already a traffic nightmare. More or expanding businesses won't help. The consumer wont' benefit either because now they'll have to pay for the higher rent to pay for redevelopment.

Upper Darby needs plenty of 'development' but it also needs to work on keeping existing areas nice. Too many neighborhoods look many inner city one with trash, pot holes, graffiti, commercial vehicles parked on public streets nights and weekends, lack of uber basic code like tree and bush trimming so one can walk on a side walk without a tree or bush combing your hair.

What does the real estate developer really want.
