St. Charles Towne Plaza To Be Renovated

As I had stated before The St. Charles Towne Plaza will be getting renovated.  They have now announced the construction will begin March of 2015 and finish up in November.  We have placed some new tenants in the plaza like PC Retro Computers and Isle of Vape.  St. Charles Pharmacy will open next month and Ashley Furniture will open April 2015 once its storefront is built next to K&G Menswear.  Panda Express has recently opened their freestanding building next to Burger King.  This was a much needed renovation.  Hopefully it will be worth the wait.

Time for La Plata to vote on the SuperWalmart

On April 9th the residents of the Town of La Plata can vote to either approve or deny the annexation of the land across from the Lowes and Giant.  If they approve the annexation then the Superwalmart can be built.  Why do they need this in the first place?  Because they can not build on well and septic and making this part of the town gives them water and sewer hookup.  What are they going to do with the old walmart if this is approved?  The developers and walmart are already working on stores to fill the space in the event it is approved.  One plan is to cut the building in to three or more stores, put a new facade on it and bring Kohls in plus others.  It would also help fill the Rosewick Crossing shopping center and bring alot of other new stores.  The vote will take place at the La Plata town hall from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m.  To read more about it visit the website above.

UPDATE 4-10-2014  The town of La Plata has rejected the annexation.
