BMW has a weak argument. First, Highway 101 South was improved over 20 years ago to handle the expected traffic. Second, Bass Pro Outdoor World LLC owns the property for the announced Bass Pro Shops store. It can build at any time.

Bass Pro Shops may be reported to be exploring an acquisition of Cabela's. It does not mean a sale has occurred.

Comparing prices on websites between the three, they are all very similar.
Gander Mountain attracts some customers from Bass Pro Shops and Cabela's while attracting other customers from REI.

Article written in September states it will be at least 1 year, maybe two years.
Bass Pro has said it will be September 2016 at the earliest.

A quick check of public records show the property taxes are unpaid. Interesting.

Why would BMW be concerned about traffic? Sounds more like a rumor someone came up with as to why BPS hasn't,(and in my opinion and probably wont) built there yet.

With that being said. Will construction still happen for BPS off of 101/I-85? Does that mean more delays?

I work at BMW and I would be surprised if this was true. BMW has it's own traffic problems in the main parking lot in the morning that they never really seem to do much about. They have made some changes, but it's basically still the same. They are now adding a new office complex as you come into the main lot to the left (near the interstate). They will have to add a long turn lane or route left turners around the main parking lot.

The main bulk of traffic comes into BMW before BPS would open in the mornings. Evening traffic will be tougher, as well as traffic for the trucks. Evening traffic though is more spread out and most of the people are going HOME. So nothing to worry BMW about there. There has been rumor for a while of opening a new truck gate off Brockman-McClimon Rd.

The additional restaurants and higher end hotels that will follow a BPS development should benefit BMW.

If the future parking lot did not perc. Is that part of the land bought,and would that have an effect on future construction, or will they back out all together?
