Kohl's Application Withdrawn

In a letter dated January 30, 2009, Steven H. Oliver of L&S Properties, informed me that the application to construct a Kohlís Department Store on a 5.81 acre industrial site located at 4903 Central Avenue and 2700 Rydin Road with a two-story 99,011-square-foot retail building, and a 76,008-square-foot commercial pad site, has been withdrawn.


The project has been extremely controversial and has generated substantial opposition led by the Richmond Annex neighborhood.


Oliver said, ďThe decision was Kohlís alone and based primarily on the general state of the economy. Their revised sale projections do not justify the construction of a store at that site.Ē
