Let convert it back to JC Penney's for a change or even try world's largest FRY's Electronics store!!! Plenty of parking spaces better than Palo Alto location.
We missed Penneys since the store closed down Sunnyvale area already several years ago !!

We need affordable housing to keep Mountain View rolling. Retail sale is slow in this economic situation. No retailer will rent this place now.

If Toll Brothers can't make it, find another builder.

Perhaps Toll Brothers has knowledge of the High Speed Rail plans and possible impacts on properties along the CalTrain right of way? Would they need to disclose the HSR EIR to potential buyers? See the thread currently running on PA Online; Schools and Kids; talking about eminent domain.
