JUST ASK SHANE: New Construction near Yoke's in Richland

Posted: Updated:
RICHLAND, WA -  We've gotten a lot of emails and Facebook messages recently about some new construction underway along Keene Road in south Richland.  Kelli is just one of the folks who emailed me asking, "I have seen new construction in the parking lot of the Richland Yoke's on Keene. Do we know what is being built?"

We spoke with the developer this week, and what you see on Keene Road is the early stages of a new, small strip mall.  Terry Blankenship with Eastside Commercial Real Estate tells me they are negotiating with several potential tenants right now.

Blankenship says the building has space for a restaurant, as well as some professional office space, and some neighborhood retail space. Possible tenants could include things like a dentist office, or a hair salon.

Construction is in the very early stages right now, and Blankenship says they have three or four clients who are very interested, and we should know more in the next couple months.  We'll follow up with Terry this fall to get an update on those tenants.
