A while ago excavation for the new 7-ll started in the lot on uptown Broadway with backhoes and bulldozers piling up mounds of dirt. Then one day it stopped and rumors began – the soil is contaminated, there’s asbestos, they ran out of money. Now there’s a ‘Lot for Sale’ sign recently put up on the fence.
It seems that the 7-Eleven project on Broadway has ended. It’s said that corporate now wants there to be a gas station with new 7-11s, and not getting the okay, they pulled out of the deal and put the lot back up for sale.
