Re: Grand Island Rumor Mill

What is going in at the corner of 281 and Faidley? Haven't been paying attention if it was in the news. Have no idea if true but was told possibly Popeyes going in at 281 and 13th former Byco location. Also apparently nothing is happening with the Hardee's that was supposed to be on North Webb by Di...

I see another frozen yogurt option is coming to the northwest side of town.  Cherryberry yogurt bar at the Conestoga Mall.   The last five years or so sure seems like the greatest growth by GI standards that I have seen.  Certainly in the dining options.  I always thought the potential was there...

I think the 50k club is exactly right, we've had a nice bump up in restaurants now some nice new retail.  My hopes were not very high for the GI Mall area, but this a great start at redevelopment.  Granted I know nothing about the mall, but I've always thought that if they put parking and storefro...

Good to know on Sam and Louie's.   The Chinese restaurant, former Pizza Hut West of Skagway on Broadwell must be closed because I see a sign on it now that says coming soon Los Dos Hermanos.  I am young but I faintly remember a former Dos Hermanos restaurant in GI.  For some reason I am picturing...

I have not seen any work on Skagway grocery renovation project in a long time.  The word I heard was that they spent too much on the parking lot and work they had already done and needed to find a new loan to finish up with the other work that they had planned.   The five points intersection on th...

Anyone know about the dirt work they are doing south of the Verizon store on 281?  Looks like a large area they are grading.

Speaking of the change that was in the last ten years got me thinking about what changes we could expect to see or hope to see in the next ten years.  I don't have any facts to back this up, but I think a good and potentially possible development I would like to see would be growth at both the inte...

I would like to see some further development at the intersection of South Locust and Hwy 34, even though I live on the other side of town, it seems like the combination of four lane access from the interstate and the events at the HEC/State Fair should make this area more appealing to some type of r...
