Goodbye Olive Chicken, we hardly knew you

The demolition of the site formerly known as Olive Chicken is now complete.  This is a prime commercial site on a very large commercially zoned lot, measuring approximately 125 ft x 100 ft in depth, with a very large amount of frontage onto 17 ave.

Commercial / Multi Family Project (BP2017-15843) is Hold. Permit created on 2017-12-04.

It also appears that an application has been filed for a multi-family project with commercial use on the lower level.  I will attempt to preview the drawings and offer some commentary on what is planned.  What I can say right now, is that a tired old chicken shack on a huge lot surrounded by parking and tumbleweeds will not be missed.  It is time the valuable land in these areas are developed with the needs of 1.25 million residents in mind.  So thumbs up to whomever is tackling this project and investing significantly to make our City better!

Looks like it sold recently as well for a significant sum.  The buyer must be very serious about getting started.

 Now that the site is demolished, I'd challenge anyone to remember what was there previously without consulting google maps.  What this site needs is a landmark mixed use project that will draw new residents and businesses to the area.
