Gotta hand it to Gerberding. He played the Aldi card to maximum advantage.

His rationale for coming back several months after groundbreaking and asking for a larger project than the one approved by CPED was that requirements imposed by Aldi required a bigger building to be financially viable. He shrewdly recognized that public demand for the Aldi store gave him leverage to bypass CPED and go before the city council to demand a bigger project.

But if I recall correctly, the city denied his request and scolded him, right?

He then went around them to the full city council and won. It was a very ballsy move.

Not saying this didn't happen (and my memory isn't what it once was), but can you point to any news reports confirming this? My googling just shows his appeals being denied.
