Slawson Cos. works to lift restriction on small part of NewMarket Square

WICHITA — Slawson Cos. is working to lift a zoning restriction on a lot at its NewMarket Square development at 21st and Maize.

The restriction won’t allow a drive-through on the lot next to where Jimmy John’s is opening by Applebee’s on 21st Street just west of Maize Road.

“That really was the catalyst for getting this restriction lifted,” says April Reed, a commercial broker with Slawson.

“Jimmy’s will have a drive-through,” Reed says. “Their lot wasn’t restricted.”

She says the best use of the restricted lot would be another quick-service style restaurant with a possible drive-through.

It would expand the potential businesses that could open there.

We’ll let you know what happens.
