24 Highway & Sterling Redevelopment Moves Forward

    On February 9 the Sugar Creek the Board of Aldermen approved a Memorandum of Understanding with the RH Johnson Company for the redevelopment of the long-delayed 24 Highway and Sterling project.   During the first phase, expected to last 60 to 120 days, the concept plan already underway will be further developed, and anchor tenants will be actively pursued.

   Jim Harpool, Vice President of Development for RH Johnson told us, “We still want to make this a grocery-anchored retail center so we are going to make every effort to secure a grocer for this location.  We're putting our team together, we've developed a new site plan and we're going to work very hard to try to move this along. 

    The RH Johnson Company has been recognized as a market leader in retail real estate services that includes all phases of retail development and management.

  Nearly 7 years after homes and business, many seized by eminent domain, were bulldozed for the creation of a shopping district at 24 Highway and Sterling, the stalled retail project may be seeing some light.

None of the properties were acquired by eminent domaine. All properties had an appraisal done by an independent appraiser and the city paid over the appraised value plus moving expenses and paid all closing costs involved in the sale. Don't know your source but I know this for a fact as I was one of the real estate agents involved with these properties. Sugar Creek gets enough bad publicity as it is so lets not publish inaccurate information. Than you.
