Retail Real Estate Reality


GOOD Magazine and Futurefarmers have been featuring an illuminating set of images this week, dubbed "Transparency," looking at everything from the (ginormous) amount of real estate occupied by some of the largest chains to the amazing potential of solar power (even Americans' sickeningly large sugar consumption).

It's a bit hard to tell on the picture above (check out the full-blown version here), but can you guess which large retailer occupies an area larger than that of Manhattan (by a fair margin)? Talk about your large carbon footprints.
