Tall Oaks: Where Irony, Like International Supermarkets, Goes to Die

As the new development that has risen from the dusty ashes of the Tall Oaks Stucco Wasteland actually begins resembling the lovely renderings on the developer website, we happened to notice something on Google Maps the other day. What's the name of the spacious, boulevard-like roadway that winds its way through the Ashtons, Kellans, and Marleys, much like the Champs Élysées if it was surrounded by mid-rise townhomes and "elevator condominiums"? 


"Bandit Loop." No one can say that developers don't have a sense of humor, although they probably should have saved that particular street name for a future development, the end.
