What could be built at Gaston/Garland?

Cash American Pawn and White Rock Pit Stop aren’t going anywhere soon, but it appears there are plans to redevelop that corner of Garland Road at Gaston Avenue.

Its owner, Lincoln Property Co., has requested to turn the two properties into one lot measuring a little over 1 acre. Lincoln’s real estate arm LPC Retail put up a sign announcing “pad site” available. The company didn’t return a call seeking comment.

Lincoln owns the adjacent shopping center, Arboretum Village, which won $1 million in economic development funds from the city to draw Fresh Market. That grocer closed all of its Texas stores last year, but Tom Thumb has opened in its place. Lincoln also owns the shopping center across the street, Lakeview Shopping Center.

So what could be built there? The property is zoned “community retail,” which allows for up to four stories and could have uses including office and “community-serving retail,” which covers a range of retail categories from convenience store to day spa.

The City Plan Commission will consider the request to re-plat the properties during its meeting this week.

This version corrected an error that implied the Tom Thumb was not yet open.
