    This is what I want to know. So few restaurants for such a busy area...

    Rooftops, there needs to be more rooftops. Edmond desperately wants Covell and 35 to be the center for everything, even giving about $15 million in incetnives to bring hotel and movie theater, not too mention more incentives for the sports complex on other side of 35. Yet even with those anchors being in place for several years, there still isnt much to show. That may change in a couple years but it shows you cant put the cart (economic development) before the horse (rooftops).

    it has little to do with rooftops ....

    it has much more to do with who has owned the property ..

    What, they are against selling land or developing the property at the moment? Rooftops and demographics are definitely at play here. Yes there is solid avg household income in the area, just not enough households to move the needle for most retailers and restaurants.

    It's a tough chicken-and-egg situation. Edmond is focusing so much on Covell and I-35 because they're trying to actually look forwards and plan. Over the next 30 years the largest growth in Edmond will be East and North. But you're right, it's hard to get the economic development there to take off until there is more density. But on the flip it's harder to get that density until you have more economic development. I do think the pandemic slowed things down, but that eventually the efforts will pay off.

    Seems like I recall and rather large apartment complex was in the plans between the hotel and the theater. It seems that location would be a perfect fit for additional restaurants and other shops to have success in that area. Does anyone else recall possible apartments to be built in that area?

    ^^^ yes it was to be apartments around 700-800 with retail on the bottom and a paseo type street going straight from the theatre to the hotel. It’s been years since it was proposed though same sh!t with the McDonald’s and it still happened so maybe they’re just waiting.

    The city of Edmond is surely eyeing city sales tax money from customers of the new businesses at Covell and I-35 coming in from Enid and Stillwater. Both towns don't have a lot of things that Edmond has, such as that fabulous new movie theater complex for starters. Neither have the two towns been able to attract major new business and especially industry. So not much distracting competition from there to discourage from going to Edmond.

    Construction is ongoing behind the McDonald's at this development (I-35 and Covell SW Corner) Any idea what is being built? I have seen plans for a new Mercy ER but that land is closer to I-35 than this property that is being worked on at this time.

    The owner on the county website says AG PUPPY COVELL RE HOLDINGS LLC so maybe it is the new Puppy Paws location.

    It will. You know this. Lots of development planned. They’ve already approved a lot just it’s just up to developers to fund it which the existing development is already killing it!

    This might have been already posted as it has been in the works for a few years but Crossings Church is planning a new campus in this area at air depot and covell. I think this is something that will start in the next year possibly.Screenshot 2023-01-18 at 8.54.03 PM.jpg

    There is a proposed townhome development on the north side of Covell between Air Depot and Midwest called Easton Woods. This agenda says that the planning commission will discuss on Jan 17th but I think it may have been pushed Feb 21st.
