4 retail buildings planned on 24-40
A building that's quickly going up on the south side of U.S. Highway 24-40 between 155th and 158th Streets soon will be home to several retail businesses.
The brick, stucco and stone building is owned by Pinehurst Retail, and should be completed in about three weeks. It will include 10,500 square feet and will be divided into seven spaces.
"Currently, we're talking to Subway, a tanning salon, a title company, a nail salon, dry cleaners and a physician," said Randy Coble, managing member of Pinehurst Retail.
Construction of three other buildings of the same size between the current building and Community National Bank is expected to begin in early to mid-fall, depending on how long it takes to lease all of the available spaces, Coble said.
Right now, Coble said, there are no other retail businesses in mind for the other three buildings.
"A lot of people don't know what it is right now," he said. "We're trying to get out there and tell people about it."
Dan Henry Construction of Shawnee is the contractor for the four-building project, which is expected to cost a total of $6 million.
