Texas Roadhouse comes to Bluffs

A Texas Roadhouse restaurant is coming to Council Bluffs.

The national chain, famous for its in-house, hand-cut steaks, has taken out the necessary building permits at the Marketplace, located along South 24th Street just south of Interstate 29/80.

“In Iowa, we have six restaurants already and so this will be the seventh,” said Travis Doster, company spokesman. “Our founder, Kent Taylor, still selects every single site. We feel it’s a great fit.”

Construction of the stand-alone restaurant should begin in the second week of July, Doster said.

“We’re looking at a late November opening,” he said. . . .

I would guess this will be located right to the North of Culver's.  They have been doing grading on area there this week.

I think you're right.  With as much commitment as there has been to Metro Crossing, I'm glad to see activity at The Marketplace; I am more partial to how it was developed.

Yeah, I think they might be able to open a little earlier than originally scheduled, but we'll see if they do or not.

The first taste of Texas-sized steaks

Council Bluffs’ first Texas Roadhouse will officially open Monday, but before the first guests walk in the door the restaurant rolled out the red, white and blue carpet for several local organizations.

This week, as the restaurant trained new cooks, meat cutters and other kitchen team members, local police and firefighters were the first to try the restaurant’s hand-cut steaks, ribs and made-from-scratch sides.

On Friday and Saturday, the restaurant hosted invitation-only pre-opening events and raised money for Children’s Square USA. . . .

The restaurant officially opens its doors in the Marketplace at 3231 S. 24th St., on Monday, from 4 to 10 p.m. . . .

From the Nonpareil:

The Marketplace Shopping Center on South 24th Street could soon have new ownership with plans to expand the center, pending approval of some financial issues by the Council Bluffs City Council Monday evening.

Red Development, also known as Red Legacy, of Kansas City, Mo., has an option to purchase the 250,000-square-foot center and add 155,000 square feet to it,....“They’ve developed Village Pointe and Shadow Lake,” he said.

With council approval, the sale should be finalized in the fall, Gross said. The new owner would seek out new leases to fill the current mall, as well as expand the center, he said. Three new restaurants, including a Chick-Filet, are planned for the center, along with small shops complementing the two anchors, Shopko and J.C. Penney, Gross said. These shops could include apparel, shoes, crafts and a sporting goods store.

Chik-Fil-A wasn't a rumor, the company purchased land 2 or 3 years ago with intent to build a restaurant, but for whatever reason has chosen to not yet develop that land.  Anyway, I hope this group does better at development than Magnum did, there's plenty of potential due to location.

Marketplace to change hands this fall

The Marketplace Shopping Center along South 24th Street by late September should be under new ownership that plans on pursuing retail stores new to the area, officials said Monday.

“We want to pursue stores not already here,” said Wes Grammer, vice president of development for Red Legacy. “Our goal is to bring new names to the market.”

The Kansas City, Mo.-based company received approval by the Council Bluffs City Council Monday evening on tax breaks to help fund the expansion of the center to 400,000 square feet from its current 250,000 square-feet size. . . .

New stores Red Legacy might pursue would be women’s apparel, athletic shoes/apparel, a bookstore, a craft store, a children’s apparel shop, even a sit-down restaurant, Grammer said.

The council’s action Monday evening involved renegotiating the development agreement originally approved between the City and Magnum. This includes extending tax increment financing privileges from 2021, the time given to Magnum to help pay for the development, to 2029 for Red Legacy, though company officials indicated it could be paid off sooner. Tax increment financing, or TIF, is basically a tax rebate to the developer over a period of years to help pay the costs of improvements.

I think it's like a brick and mortar Amazon. lol

I'm actually surprised they'd open a new bookstore seeing how most of them are closing these days.

Council OKs some Marketplace requests, but not all

The company that wants to purchase the Marketplace Shopping Center went before the Council Bluffs City Council Monday evening to address some issues before it officially signs off on the purchase agreement. The issues include signage, building reconfiguration and a new access point into the center on South 24th Street.

The council approved four of the six requests made by Red Legacy of Kansas City, Mo. The one issue Red Legacy wanted the most, a right-in/right-out driveway on 24th Street, was denied . . . .

The council also denied the request for a sign on the corner of South 24th Street and 34th Avenue.

The council did approve the company’s request for allowing more sign panels on the large mall sign by the interstate. It also approved some slight reconfigurations of proposed buildings in the mall. . . .

City Attorney Richard Wade said the main development agreement between the city and Red Legacy has been approved by both sides and the company was scheduled to sign the purchase by the end of September.

The council has already provided the company with tax breaks to fund the expansion of the center to 400,000 square feet from its current 250,000 square-feet size.

DEB is gone worldwide. They officially closed all stores a couple weeks ago, stating they'll close each store as inventory runs out. Even on their site, They are having a liquidation sale

Probably cound start another thread, or maybe there is one but I didn't find it.

What is being built along 24th St by Hwy 275? There is major dirt work going on on both sides of Hwy 275 but what I am referring to is on the N side. There were a lot of Concrete pumpers there today and trucks rolling in and out.

I don't think the existing storefronts are large enough. Deb was only 7500 sq. ft. and it is the largest vacant space.

I saw this last weekend. Crazy that they are adding all those bays when there a ton of empty ones next to JCPenney. Hopefully they have all their tenants lined up already.

The World Herald finally reports on the 2 Shopkos closing. Sounds like they are closing at the end of January. The one in CB opened in 2009.
