Some positive developments on our busiest street, north to south …
- Burger King. I just heard from folks involved in this project, and here is the update on the location planned for the Walmart outlot: Groundbreaking is expected early this fall, with an opening this winter. I know a lot of people have been asking about this project, as the land remains undeveloped almost a year after the development was approved. It’s really nice to see them moving ahead with this. I can already taste my first Whopper.
- Nomi Coffee. The new coffee house on at 513 N. Chicago Ave. is now serving food, with the kitchen open from 10:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day. The menu includes toasted ravioli, a turkey BLT, build-your-own grilled cheese, or a “Nomi Sandwich.” They’ve also repaved their parking lot in the last week.
- Citgo. The new gas station at the corner of 10th and Manitoba opened last week, too.
So, really good momentum. And more to come!
