Gateway News Originals -- "Walmart to come?"

At the heart of the request of Commerce City's northern range in the last decade, was "some sort of" development for the 104th corridor. 104th Avenue, seemed, was widened without much hope of accompanying development (until of course, the new "super" King Soopers emerged in 2012). And for years, Walmart's dibs on the land at 104th & Tower Road drew hope, patience, anticipation, anxiety, and ultimately, it seems, politically-attempted anger (in that order) toward Walmart by our then-city Manager....
