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?

It's amazing how close the building is to the current placement of the traffic signals. This building will be very much built out right to the sidewalk, which will be great.
