UNION GAP, Wash. -- A new big box retail development is looking to move into Union Gap and it received no opposition yesterday at a public hearing.
Next it moves to the city council. They will decide whether or not to rezone the land across the street from CostCo to regional commercial which will allow big box retail to move in.
If the city council says yes the development could begin building by the end of the summer.
The plans feature two main anchor stores, with 4 retail spaces and seven smaller retail buildings.
John Hodkinson, the realtor for the development, would not say which specific stores are planning to move in.
"We have two fairly large big box users that are ready to go it appears, and we have some more that we're working with now that will hopefully complete the project," said Hodkinson.
One of the main stores is said to be a grocery store.
There are some other traffic mitigations that need to be looked at. They're being required to pay for stoplights at some of the intersections. Tenants are waiting to see how much that will cost before they decide to move in.
