More demolition activity in North Gulch

Now that Greyhound is no longer using the old Hansen dealership on Charlotte & 11th, a few dozers have been knocking down buildings in what could be a sign of things to come. The almost 30-acre site in the North Gulch owned by Northwestern Mutual and being developed by Boyle has a lot of folks wondering what's going to happen at the site.

Late last year, there was speculation of an IKEA in the plans. This spring a report was released on the three most suitable locations for a new Sounds stadium – the North Gulch site was one of them. Neither NW Mutual or Boyle has shown their hand, but my guess is a Publix will end up being the anchor for whatever mixed use development rises from the ground. Stay tuned, something is just over the horizon.
