The Olympic Resort and Spa in Carlsbad, Calif., closed its doors for good in 2008. In its place will rise a 153,974-sq.-ft. Lowe's, the city announced last week.

Carlsbad has given the green light to Palomar Commons, a development on the site of the old resort that in addition to a Lowe's will also include a gas station, a car wash, a bank with drive-through and four retail shop buildings totaling 31,270 sq. ft.
