They closed last June, I think, so it would make sense to view it as a casualty of the same thing that has shut down thousands of other restaurants around the US in the last 12 months...

Default The Rumor Mill....

The Rumor Mill: Taco Bueno is looking at re-entering the Lubbock market. It's looking at going in on 82nd Street. I checked the chain's website, and it's in the Coming Soon dish.

I'd have to think that they used to be there a while back, given that the chain started in Abilene and grew like gangbusters. Although Lubbock does have some competition, it never hurts to have a little more.

Default New Water Towers

The following article is seven months old, but I just found out that Lubbock is building five brand-new water towers throughout the city to better pump water to consumers. This will also improve the city's landscape, as well.

It did look as though another hotel (Residence Inn?) was being put up next to Panda Express just NE of Jones Stadium, last time I was there in November.

All of the sites mentioned are seemingly within shouting distance of each other, so maybe I’m nitpicking some. However, it illustrates that a lot is still happening around there.
I drove by this property the other day, and behind the hotel, they are building a five story apartment building, like those west of University. I also saw a city council meeting the other day and there is a new development at Main and Avenue X. There will be 7 story apartment buildings built north and south of Main. The properties being removed include the building where the venerable Main Street Salon was located, and a small apartment complex on the north side.

Sorry, missed this when looking the other day. First reaction:

These properties should be very good recruiting tools for TTU. Additional residences within walking distance of campus should make things easier for everyone, in my opinion.

Default Breaking: Ready Or Not, Here It Comes....

Local enough, but not in the city of Lubbock: Wolfforth is getting ready for explosive growth. Developers are putting together a sizable new home development. Try 2,500 new ones. This will also lead to a second Frenship ISD high school.

This is huge, folks....

Lubbock Cooper ISD just passed a $400 million plus bond to fund a second high school, middle school and elementary campus.

Something that also signals significant growth, Circle K is building five or six new stores in the western part of Lubbock, a market it has no footprint, currently.

Wow, Frenship and Cooper were only 3A schools not too long ago. Crazy to see they’re both adding high schools.

All that, along with five brand-spanking-new water towers, and Taco Bueno's return to the Hub City are making this a heck of a week. I'd still like to see some local institutions which have just one location add more. Oh, and there's even talk of a new hockey rink courtesy of a pro hockey player who lives in Lubbock during the off-season. Stay tuned for more on that.

Hey, Westerner! Things are happening now in this area. There's also some movement in the northwest. Don't be surprised if Shallowater or even New Deal follow suit.
