New Retail Space about to Take Shape at old Blairs Ferry Nash Finch Location
Every time I drive by that massive piece of land on Blairs Ferry Road between Council Street and Rockwell Dr. NE I think about what it will look like when construction is completed. The old Nash Finch site across from Target, The Fieldhouse & Northtowne Schwinn is now into the dirt-moving phase.
The $16 million project will be known as Northtowne Market with 13 buildings on that 20- acre plot, according to the Hunter Companies.
While a water park would have been on my wishlist, what would you like to see in that space? It'd be cool to see some Iowa-owned regional businesses take some it. Whatever it turns out to be, the real estate is prime with massive Blairs Ferry car counts, big existing businesses across the street [that are glad to see this transformation] and Rockwell employees right around the corner.
Hats [and helmets] off to all the construction workers across the Hawkeye State this summer. Good to see the new layouts and designs.
