The policy question, I see, is whether to hold out for the ideal (no drive thru and redeveloped) vs find a way to craft a way to allow allow non-conforming drive thrus to be brought back into redevelopment (subject to conditions) and see the sites redeveloped but with more auto traffic than desired.
Sure, sometimes you need a crutch to get through a transition. Some new developments still have a handful of surface parking spaces (“think of the handicapped!!!”), and if they need that, so be it. It’s not make-or-break.

But drive thru’s really do encourage/reward driving in a way that a few parking spaces don’t.

The only compromise I can see is a walkup/bike-up window (like Terzo at 50th & Penn, or early Dairy Queen’s).

Slight tangent, but I LOVE walkup(/bikeup) windows. They're a great amenity for pedestrians and add street-level activity.

The dairy queen I grew up with (on white bear ave near hillcrest) had one, so lots of nostalgia.

Edit: I have a free idea I'd be willing to contribute to/help with: streets.mn ride along this spring to see the 54 extension (perhaps the whole length of route 54?).

Atlanta reviews designs of new buildings. Do the “before” pictures remind you of anything?
