Their plans call for demolishing approximately 10,849 square feet of the western portion of the existing 36,380 square foot retail center, while making improvements to the remaining building façade.  In addition to revitalizing the existing center, a new 7,728 square foot retail building is proposed to be constructed closer to University Drive.  The new building include a drive-through facility and outdoor seating area.
