Grand Cornell Commercial Plaza

July 2007 - Business in Cornell is growing again! The residential phase of Grand Cornell is proceeding very well. The construction of the commercial plaza could start as early as this fall and possibly have stores open by the summer of 2008.

The plaza will consist of an intimate Main Street and small shops including live/ work townhomes with retail on the ground floor. The plaza will feature a beautiful piazza in the center surrounded by restaurants and their patios. At this stage it looks like only 3 large format stores which will be much smaller than regular big box stores being built in Grand Cornell.

The developer is in talks with retailers who are very interested in Grand Cornell Commercial. At this point their are a couple of banks who have expressed interest also.

More Businesses Blooming

Spring 2007 – Over the last few months, the business face of Cornell has changed significantly. We’ve seen new shops and services open up on Cornell Park Avenue and on Bur Oak Avenue in the live/work units, but we have also seen our Jumbo Video store and our Café close, despite great efforts to survive. To keep businesses open and operating in our community, we need to get out and support them. Over the next few years, business will grow in Grand Cornell. We’ll have restaurants, shops, a grocery store and more within arm’s reach. As details become available, we will be sure to keep you informed so that you can take advantage of them. Thanks, in advance, for supporting your local businesses.
