New Casey’s store planned at busy Basehor intersection
Basehor motorists soon will have another choice in buying gasoline -- sort of.
Construction is under way on a 2,500-square-foot building at the northeast corner of 155th Street and U.S. Highway 24-40. The building, which fronts 155th Street, will house a Casey's General Store, the city's second such business.
Ed McIntosh, who along with local man John Bell, own the new Wolf Creek Junction development, said the new Casey's store could be open by February, if builders are graced with decent weather.
McIntosh said he's been told by Casey's executives that the existing store, 2722 N. 155th St., will remain open.
The new store will feature six gasoline pump stations -- or double the number at the existing Casey's store. McIntosh described the design of the new store as one of Casey's "fancier models."
Wolf Creek Junction encompasses 33 acres of land. All told, the development will include approximately 20 buildings ranging from 10,000 to 15,000 square feet with commercial, office and retail uses.
McIntosh said negotiations are under way between Wolf Creek Junction and a group of doctors to move to the development. He also said discussions have taken place with several other potential tenants, but no final deals have been completed.
