New Duplexes, Strip Malls, Restaurants, Atwoods Store, Motel Heading to Webb City Retail Districtby Jordan Aubey
WEBB CITY, MISSOURI – Construction begins on a multi-million dollar retail district, where Four Staters will soon be able to take advantage of a new housing development, stores, restaurants, and a motel, among other things.
This entire development area is called the Centennial Park Retail District, near Highway 171. The City of Webb City purchased this land several years ago, and officials say there’s been a recent surge in interest from developers.
While bulldozers are pushing dirt, Wes Barnum is looking over risky proposals.
“Any time you invest in any thing, there are risks involved,” says Barnum with ECWB Properties, LLC.
Barnum is developing a $2.5 project that includes a new strip mall and duplexes. He says business owners have shown interest in the six retail stall building set to be completed around the beginning of January.
