These Aren't the Droids You're Looking For

I sat down with the neighborhood group a few days ago for their meeting with QT's real estate project manager Daniel Chambers, where they previewed a Generation 3 model they say is 1000 square feet smaller.  That didnt alter their overall footprint there, as the size and number of their fuel canopies remain the same.  

The store faces the big empty lot of Office Depot on Lewis ave. while the two canopies and fuel tanks jut into the neighborhood facing 15th.  
At one point I asked if they would consider eliminating the east canopy from their plan, which seemed to come as a shock.

The neighbors were hoping QT would eliminate the curb cut that emptied traffic into the neighborhood from Lewis Place, but that struck me as an expendable that QT was using as a dangling carrot.  The slide the project manager showed wasnt in a form that could be submitted to the city, and he did confirm to the neighbors that it wasnt what was submitted.  He refused to make the sketch publicly available when asked, so at least we know it existed on paper at one time.  

He mentioned the plans would change with the widening of Lewis ave. for turn lanes, and promised QT wouldnt move on this until the existing business leases expire in 13 months, so we will see how that goes.  Of course, the street construction could kill off Bill and Ruths before then.
