WICHITA — You may have noticed that about 20 houses have been cleared from the southwest corner of Kellogg and Oliver.
A new development isn’t coming, though — at least not yet.
“We’re just clearing the site,” says Jeff Walenta, who is working with his father, Don, to develop the corner. “We’re just prepping it so we’re better prepared to deliver a site when ready.”
The property is five acres. It’s platted for three pad sites. Ideally, Walenta says he’d like to attract fast food or full-service restaurants.
“Either one would be great.”
Walenta isn’t sure how long potential deals could take.
“That’s always a tough question,” he says.
“The market’s getting better, yes. It’s just finding that right tenant.”
