Coulter Properties applies for rezoning where Plaid Giraffe may expand

WICHITA — Coulter Properties has applied for a zoning change near the Plaid Giraffe at 302 N. Rock Road.

Jamie Coulter owns the building and the store.

Dru Coulson, who manages the property, says there is a small vacant area in the building that is zoned limited commercial but is surrounded by general office zoning.

Plaid Giraffe may like to expand into the space and add onto it.

“You can’t do retail in a general office zoning,” Coulson says.

So that’s necessitating the zoning change.

Coulson says it’s also a possibility that Eric Fisher could expand his salon into part of that space. Or, a new tenant could locate there.

“It’s nothing in stone,” Coulson says.

The Plaid Giraffe expansion is likely, though.

“You know, I think probably before the end of the year, before holiday season,” Coulson says. “That’s what we’ve kicked around.”
