Well, Here is some more development news. All of it downtown too! A promising future is starting to shape up for the downtown area.

Construction underway to build 164 unit apartments near downtown Corpus Christi - Bay Vista II

This here will be a huge catalyst for major developments and revitalization downtown
Destination Bayfront to present business plans next month, possible bond proposal for November

Who knows... Maybe we will see new high rises in the not so distant future for downtown Corpus Christi
Vacant bayfront land near downtown sees plans for hotel, apartments, and retail

For a city as small as CC and with as small as an MSA CC has, there sure is a lot of development going on. I think it is safe to say that the city is finally moving in the right direction.

Dick's is on my personal boycott list since they caved and removed AR-15s from their stores. I wish we could have gotten a better sports store.

Yea, I have heard that news. But, I won't let my political views interfere with business competition to drive prices lower. I've noticed prices at our Academy are higher than those in other cities, because it is the one and only sports store in town.

So even though I do not agree with Dick's for removing AR's, I like the competition and wider variety of merchandise. I will be shopping there. I already have an AR-15, but there are plenty of other places around town I can buy another, if the need arises.

So it seems like Roddfield will soon become the new Staples, with a lot of development planned, and downtown actually has a plan for revitalization. Hopefully the plans with downtown will be turned into a reality.

Development on Roddfield strains infrastructure.

City planners see potential in oldest neighborhoods.

The city is developing a plan to revitalize and entice development in the downtown area. This will benefit the area greatly and could lead to some major projects.

Downtown, city's oldest neighborhoods to be focus of Corpus Christi incentive strategy

I moved here to the Corpus area back in 2009. Little did I know the explosive growth that would be taking place! Hopefully the infrastructure can keep in pace. That would have to be my single, largest worry for CC.

Corsstown extension slated for later this year

This will help relieve traffic on the far southside and entice development south of Oso Creek. What really needs to be done, is to just extend the freeway to S Staples already.
