Developers presenting a plan last week to turn an empty Blockbuster video into a CVS Pharmacy were met with little enthusiasm from neighbors, reports Uptown Messenger.

The corner building at Louisiana Avenue and Magazine Street has been vacant since Blockbuster Video closed, although a Subway restaurant and a Green Tea Chinese Restaurant remain open.  Developers have plans to purchase the entire shopping center, renovate it, kick out Subway and Green Tea, and put in a CVS.

Uptown Messenger reported that neighbors were particularly upset about the developer’s request to serve alcohol, stay open late, lighting, litter and also some design-related issues.

The proposal must be heard first by the City Planning Commission, and then by the City Council.
