Dillons, Kwik Shop among new projects up for approval
This and that from the Lawrence development scene. ¢ Expect to see some construction work at the Kwik Shop store at the corner of 19th and Massachusetts streets. The company plans to give its existing store a major overhaul and new look, according to a site plan filed with the city's planning department. The company also plans to convert much of a vacant grass lot to the east of the store into additional parking. ¢ Kwik Shop's corporate cousin - Dillons - also plans to get out the hammer and saw at its store at 3000 W. Sixth Street. According to a site plan, the company wants to add a drive-through pharmacy lane to the store. The drive-through would be near the southeast corner of the building. ¢ Keep an eye on the intersection of Peterson Road and Monterey Way. A recent application for preliminary plat for 3901 Peterson Road proposed a large multi-family development that targeted retirees. But now, planners say the developers have requested a deferral of the plat, and it is uncertain when the project may move forward. ¢ People who live near Eldridge Lane and Overland Drive may be getting some new neighbors. A request to rezone and plat about 10 acres at 4145 Seele Way has been received by city planners. The request seeks to rezone the property from traditional single-family lots to a mix of duplex and small-lot single family development. Specifically, the rezoning would allow for 44 duplex living units and 19 single-family homes. Previously, the land had been zoned to allow for 41 single family homes.
