What's going on with the land across from Kalahari?

I drive by Hoty's project on U.S. 250 across from Kalahari almost daily, and I see they are making a great deal of progress on the project site. Has there been any more announcements about other businesses, besides the Hy-Miler, that will be occupying the development? Eric on Hendry Street.

Hoty Enterprises corporate counsel Kula Hoty Lynch provided the following answer:

"We are very excited about the progress of our project. As of now, we have no official additions but are working with a few prospective businesses. The total site is 30 acres, so we are focusing on a sustainable, long-term plan of hopefully mixed-used — entertainment, restaurants, office. We are always open to suggestions from the community so let us know of any ideas for the project."

Feel free to comment below about what you would like to see go into that space.

Sweet, more strip malls!

IT'S ME

We need an IHOP & Boston Market.

With Perkins in town WHY would anyone eat at IHOP. I would take Perkins over it any day.

Kelly

I'd take just about anything over Perkins...except for their blueberry muffins

The last time I ate at Perkins I felt like I was eating at a retirement home. The average customer age was 75 and the portion size wasn't worth the price.

LOL, like Berardi's at lunch...

IHOP & BOSTON MARKET!!! Perfect

Hooters

It won't be called Hooters, it'll be called Saggy's. Unless they bring women in from out of town

LMAO @Saggy's ! I have an idea..plastic surgery facility..Heehee

So you build with disregard for the wildlife and neighbors to the South, or do you just plan to squeeze them all out. I've been to meetings in the past in regards to a ballpark that was never built. You showed no interest in our concerns.

I grew up with corn and beans for neighbors, a mall was built, it is now junk, [woodville], the dirt is still there, plant!

How about a concert hall ... need a place close to home for concerts instead of having to go to Cleveland, Toledo, or Detroit to see them

Good 2 B Me

I agree 100%

Fibber Mcgee

Mill Street Bistro!!!!

Tool Box

God NO!

arnmcrmn

Hooters has the worst wings EVER. Dear Lord you people need to get out more often.....and if you are wanting to go to a place to look at hot women with busting shirts.....Skankdusky is not the best recruiting place for something like this. lol.

Chick-fil-A. Why is there not one in Sandusky?

Good 2 B Me

There is, at Cedar Point. They would never make it if they were somewhere that had competition!

With all the "Hooters" comments, I wonder do you REALLY like the food or is it all about the boobs?

All this Hooters talk is so juvenile. The food is nothing special and you can see covered "boobs" for free. How many dates can you take to Hooters? Men can act so dumb sometimes!

doppleganger

I see plenty of boobs on these comments everyday.

Jon Limber

bd's Mongolian Grill!

Agree!!!!! 100000000000000%

reporter54

very funny Hoss and I couldn't agree more but the real question is what is going on with Kalahari? pays slave wages and makes owner rich while not paying enough taxes I'd bet. boycott that place.

margaritaville88

Tilted Kilt is a much classier place. Irish Nachos, Drunken Clams, Big Arse Burgers, Olde Dublin Irish Stew, Meatloaf sandwich..etc...Now I am hungry, lol !!!

Tool Box

Joes Crab shack would make a killing there!

margaritaville88

I agree with ya on that one tool box !!

Katelih-Trailer...

I am not a big fan of seafood..But when I see commercials for that place, I swear, my mouth waters. It looks so scrumptious! I too think it would make a killing in that location!

sandfreak13

It is going to be a gas station from what I heard

shucks

Car wash and pizza place.

MRS.H

a Panda Express!

A Casino and some strip clubs!

fenderstrat52

How about a micro-brewery with great food? Make me happy, happy, happy!

Penn Station. Waffle House. Skyline Chili.

I think we should put a Ice Rink with two or three rinks in it and get some Hockey started in this town and in our schools!

Ice rinks are gong broke across the country. According to the US Sporting Goods Assoc., ice sports have been in steady decline for a few decades now.

bumponalog

I agree on the ice rink. Fremont has a great facility and we have nothing. this location would be great for an ice rink with Kalahari across the street. hockey tournaments could bring in out of towners who could stay at local hotels and an ice rink would get kids in the area to start skating.

mjmnogoal

How about an indoor sports facility. That is what makes sense around here. There is nothing to do for athletes The gyms are not that good, and there is nothing to do in the winter time. There are a ton of restaurants, so I don't see why adding another one would be a priority around here.

asweetnessabove

Even though I'd love to see BD's Mongolian BBQ come to town, I have to agree with you. No wonder we are the most obese nation, it's because we have so many restaurants and fast food joints, and not enough sports facilities or inexpensive gyms where kids and adults can go to not be lazy!
