Here at Count On Downtown we didn’t think we’d ever get too excited by another McDonald’s Restaurant opening up. In this case we’ll make an exception. This new franchise owned by Jimmy Williams opened today, in sync with the new Tucker Boulevard section north of Cole Street that will eventually lead to the new Mississippi river bridge.
The roadway and pavement of this new stretch of Tucker look good. Nice materials, wide sidewalks, landscaping along the roadway and in the median. The new McDonald’s restaurant boasts the look and style now used for franchises nationwide. All-in-all a good addition to downtown. We fear for the circumferences of our friends at the Post-Dispatch with this new food option a stone’s throw away.
