Re: Crossroads - Redevelopment Plan

All good arguments here. IF this EVER gets to a planning board and city council agenda you really need to plan to attend as a group and make these arguments. Make it a forum meet. AND, contact the mayor and city council members NOW with your concerns. They need to hear them NOW. Especially the mayo...

Re: ANDERSON BP

The gas station property is listed for sale so that seems unlikely. Buck's bought this building in late February for a cool $1m while it was evaluated at $525k but are now asking $725k with a deed that restricts the property from use as a C-Store and/or car wash, so I am guessing the building/car w...

Re: JC Penny's

I've never shopped that mall, I used to call on the HyVee when I rep'd. Grocery store was always busy and you're right, Gordman's seemed to be busier than Penney's. But it's 30 minutes max to Westroads, so I would expect they'd see a bump in traffic!

The other part of the rumor is that they are going to remodel the old Gordmans, ConAgra building next door & move the store into that. Other rumor is Kroger owns land across the street from the Irvington Walmart & they are building there. Who knows?!!!

According to mall management "something" is going in up there, but were tight lipped as to what. That usually means nothing is signed yet. I do know that a "snack" shop that will sell candy, pop & other things is due to open near the food hall soon.
