Lots of construction equipment now on site across Highway 123 from Easley Town Center.

Ugh .... just what the 153/Easley needs ..... more sprawl.

Did you see the article in the Atlantic that spoke about Easley? Not too flattering with respect to its strip mall personality.

Sorry, but I would like to see existing commercial property reused, not abandoned.

This was a vacant lot beside the Church. I would like to see some of the abondoned buildings used as well.

can't use any of the empty buildings for a QT.. this really was the best place for it. Not talking about a pretty parcel of land here so I'm happy it's going to get some use.

OK then, knock down an unsuitable legacy buiding and replace it with a QT. It reuses the land, keeps sprawl contained and eliminates yet another curb cut with its associated impact on traffic. This is happening at the old Hickory Point and I have no issue with that. Replace the old unprofitable infrastructure with an update of essentially the same thing.

Pat has a parcel for sale just down the road (the trailer park). I can just imagine this site flipping and another Sheetz/QT/BP/Whatever going in there. Can't wait to see how that turns out.

I actually tend to agree with this. For Example, while I didn't mind the businesses in the Chiefs/Fratteli's plaza, and i'm not a big fan of mcdonalds, it was great to see an ugly strip mall be torn down in order to build a brand new building that much better suits the 123 area. I wish more businesses would do things like that.

I'm sure QT made the best deal for the lowest price to acquire land for their new store. If the best deal was to raze/rebuild on an existing convenience store/gas station or other site (if such was even available at the time), I'm sure that's what they would have done.

Nobody is saying they didn't make the best deal for themselves.

I think more what is being said is there are many other locations that would have been nice to see used. I can think of at least 3 or 4 usable empty spaces between where I live and that land. not to mention 10 or 12 strip malls and cash for gold or title lending buildings/businesses I would like to see torn down.

Hopefully something will go there! I would rather see a profitable business stimulating the economy than a mh park. Hoping the new traffic light helps. There are some medical offices across the street and I would love to see Powdersville get a good restaurant. Even a Olive Garden or something to that affect would be nice.
