Idly wondering what occult secret in the urban planning codes results in so many shopping center spaces being precisely 157,185 square feet.

@kiplet Hm. Well, it's 3 * 3 * 5 * 7 * 499. That 499 looks suspiciously like one short of a threshold number of some sort.


@CarlMuckenhoupt And 315 feet does appear to be an awfully popular measurement in zoning code documents, hmm.
