A developer is planning a 3,200-square-foot, two-tenant retail building at 2181 N. Meridian St. in another small sign of progress for the uptown corridor. The vacant .68-acre parcel sits at the southeast corner of Meridian and 22nd streets. Plans by SRT Holdings of Kentucky call for a one-story retail building with a Subway restaurant and another, unnamed tenant. The other three corners of the intersection have retail buildings, including the Balboaâ€™s sub shop at the northwest corner. The plans call for the structure to be built up to the sidewalk along Meridian but set back from 22nd to allow for a drive-through. Other recent developments in the area include Bonjour Cafe & Bakery at 24th and Meridian and the Meridian at 21 residential project about a block south.
: I'm told the developer has revised the site design, at the planning department's request, to move the building up to the corner. The building design also is being revised to include brick on all four sides up to the top of the windows.
