“It is exciting. It is a lot different than when I used to come to work, there used to be cows and now there is construction everywhere,” Norton said.
On the Getwell Road side of the property, steel framing for retail and loft apartments are going up.
Developer Brian Hill said the first of the buildings going up should be done in Spring 2020.
Norton runs a giftshop across the street from the development and welcomes the traffic.
“We opened in 2000, and people come in… it’s great publicity for our store and strip mall,” Norton said.
Hill told FOX13 in the next week and a half they will start putting asphalt down back there.
Officials said 35 homes will be built in the first phase and some homes should be done in six months.
