Developer GMX Real Estate Group recently held a public meeting to discuss plans to develop a new retail and commercial site at the intersection of Ash Avenue and U.S. 51. In the attached document, the company has addressed many of the concerns raised. One of the most popular questions has been related to what companies would be located in the site. According to GMX, the proposed redevelopment would include a family friendly mix of national and regional restaurant, retail and service-related users typically found in “first-class” shopping centers. Chipotle Mexican Grill has corporately approved the site and would serve as the anchor for the project if the rezoning is approved.
The company’s request to rezone parcels to facilitate the development is set to be heard by the Decatur Plan Commission at 3 p.m Thursday, December 7th at the Decatur Civic Center.
