82nd Street retail projectA local developer is betting more restaurants and retailers are interested in opening stores near Nordstrom Rack and The Container Store than Rivers Edge owner Kite Realty Group can accommodate. Indianapolis-based Veritas Realty has put a 1.6-acre parcel across 82nd Street from Rivers Edge under contract and is planning a 13,400-square-foot retail strip with five small-shop spaces. The vacant land next door to Lifestyle Family Fitness had been listed for sale for $1.7 million. Veritas, which has not yet signed up any tenants, is asking for an aggressive $40 per square foot in rent. The center likely will house two or three restaurants, along with small retailers or service users, said Veritas principal Kyle Hughes, who is handling leasing of the center with Jamison Downs. The lead developer is Bill Stoops. The goal is to break ground in mid-March and finish by June 2012, but they won't start construction without commitments for at least 50 percent of the space. A Jack in the Box had been proposed for a smaller parcel on the other side of Lifestyle Family Fitness, but neighborhood groups scuttled the plan over concerns about a drive-through.

  • Bicycle Garage?
    does anyone know what is going into Bicycle Garages existing location after they move into their new building?

      Another reason to avoid 86th/82nd.
    • insane...
      $40/sq ft?? PLUS another $5/sq ft in CAM charges. Good luck getting anyone to pay that. Simply insane!!

    • more empty stores
      This is what our cities and state needs. More empty stores in strip malls...Awesome idea!! Why don't these developers use the old buildings and locations, stop littering our state with empty buildings!!

      This is exactly what you ask for in your previous post. You want the US to destroy a path for oil from Canada so we can drive afurther due to "cheap" subsidized oil. These centers exist for that very reason. Subsidized oil and roads allows for very little cost on these project up front and you provide the ongoing demand.
    • I want Jack in the Box
      So the Nora Northside Community Council (This is WAY FAR FROM NORA) impacted the Jack in the Box? They should stay in their own neighborhood.

    2. My name is Mr Henry Josh and i live in the USA California and life is worth living right now for me and my family and all this is because of one man sent by GOD to help me and my family, i once had a life filled with sorrow because my first SON needed a kidney transplant and all our savings were going towards his medications and this normally leaves us with no money to pay our bills or even put enough food on our table and our rent was due and no funds to pay these bills and life felt so unfair to me and every night my wife will cry herself to sleep every night until one day, i was browsing through yahoo answers and i saw a striking advert of a man that gives out personal loans and that the offer is opened to all and i have heard so many things about internet scams but at this point of my life, i was very desperate and ready to take any risk and at the end of the day, i applied for this loan and from one step to another, i got my loan within 12 hours through bank transfer and you know, it was all like a dream and i called Mr Daniel Jones A Man who is the GOD sent lender i found and said, i have received my loan and he smiled stating that to GOD be the glory and i was so shocked as i have never ever seen anyone with such a GOD fearing and kind heart and today, i am the happiest man on earth because by GOD’S grace, my SON kidney transplant was successful and today he is healthy, i and my family are living very comfortable and happy and if you are in my former situation or in serious and legitimate need of a loan, you can reach this GOD sent lender via

    4. Elected officials, like Mourdock, get vested in 8 years. It takes 10 years for all other public employees, most of whom make a lot less money. So much for the promise to finish out his term.

    5. Great state treasurer and a good man!! Just curious if the folks who didn't quite understand his quote would like to tell my daughter-in-law that God didn't intend her! Mourdock's comment was correct but twisted and the article didn't mention that his opponent and the press let the impression stand that Mourdock meant that the rape was intended. Stupid people!!
