Manawa Power Center

Postby skinzfan23 » Fri Jun 05, 2015 9:00 am

Couldn't find a dedicated thread to the area.

Not huge news, but glad to see that they are replacing the Taco Bell near Lake Manawa. I think that was one of the first restaurants built in the shopping center and they haven't done any upgrades since.

New Taco Bell planned for Manawa center

“It’s one of their next prototypes,” said Chris Gibbons, a planner with the city’s Community Development Department.
“It’s a different design architecturally. It’s a new Taco Bell. They’re doing them nationwide.”
The new style will provide 2,700 square feet of restaurant space and will be built just to the north of the current restaurant that’s 2,000 square feet in size.

As part of the new development, a water quality feature will be provided along the west side of the site.”
Just prior to the opening, the existing restaurant will be closed so that at no time will both facilities be operational, Malinowsky said.

That seems like a rather big building for a US Cellular location.

Not doubting that but when I saw the shell of the building I was surprised.

Have you seen the building size? AM I crazy to think it is big for this type of business? Note: I didn't just ask straight up if I am crazy.

Wsa in the area at noon today and there was a roll off dumpster sitting by the main doors and there were a few vehicles in the lot that looked to be contractor type vehicles but none of them that I saw had any company names on them

They aren't wasting any time with these new railroad tracks all over Council Bluffs.
