From my understanding more apartments are coming to Boonville and Copperfield across from the carwash/Bigs

I know Jared (worked at UniFirst when he opened his first location) and he's a standup guy!

I can't wait for the new location since it will be closer to my work.

Good luck!

The building across the street from Chicken Oil where the archery place used to be is almost all gone. They are loading the rubble into big trucks right now.

Just noticed that this morning. More parking for Chicken Oil?

Looks like a good place for a 30-story mixed-use apartment building.

I believe that side of the street is owned by the people who own Farm Patch.

The owners of Chicken Oil eventually plan on tearing down the old building next to it and making that into parking.

I didn't realize the Scarmardos owned that piece as well.

I had heard that part of the issue with reopening Chicken Oil was bringing parking up to code, both in condition and number of spaces.

Mark Scarnardo told me a couple of months ago they they owned the land just to the South of Farm Patch and were going to expand on that parcel of land instead of building a new facility behind where Razoo's is located, which was the initial plan.

The Scarmardo's own that center across from the Hilton & they spent their own $$$ putting the "street" in that connects University Drive to Lincoln between Blue Baker & Rosa's.

That is part of the game and how it's played. That's part of development - spending developer money to upgrade/upsize water & sewer lines, extend/add sidewalks and streets, etc. 'That's the way baseball go.'

In developer world it should be called the "Crompton Clause".

Sounds like TAMU is waffling on the Macy's purchase for E-sports center. Thought that would have been a great solution for both parties involved.

heard some local report on texags radio a couple minutes ago. somebody from the city said they haven't heard from tamu and will start looking into other avenues.

kind of a bummer really. felt like that could have been huge for the mall and tamu. not sure if there is a real esports center in Texas.

It was a Pres Banks baby, so maybe there wasn't enough justification/momentum to keep it going after Banks "retired".

I think it would have been great. Not that I would participate, but Esports is growing fast and getting set up as a premier destination for Esports would pay dividends for the local economy.

The CS mayor talks a bit about the Macy's deal likely being dead in his WTAW interview yesterday:

This is my shocked face. When are the voters in this town going to wake up and realize that electing a bunch of academics with very little real world knowledge on anything, isn't exactly a great idea for the prosperity our city? These people ought to be embarrassed and ashamed. But they are so arrogant and have such an insane level of hubris, that they are not. They paid millions more for a functionally obsolete facility than what an investor/flipper paid just a matter of months before. What's their attitude on this in the aftermath? "Oh well, is what its....It will just be our cross to bear going forward"

Does anybody have any idea what shape the Macy's building is in? It looks like it's about to fall down.

A good place to start this November would be to vote for whatever candidate is not endorsed by CSAN.
