    What are they building??

    I have been gone for two weeks so sorry if this has already been answered. I got back into town yesterday after being gone and I saw that they had broken ground on something next to the Kum & Go on Mortensen in Ames. Anyone know what this is going to be?

    Re: What are they building??

    There seems to be an AAU tourney out there almost every weekend. That place will do well. I am hoping for one more fast food option to open up out there. Something with a drive thru. Like a Popeye's or something.

    I hope it's a bank or an auto parts store.

    Never really been a huge Chik-Fil-A fan but I would take it over nothing. A Sonic would work too. Then there would be a breakfast option as well. I have to believe with all the families out in town for AAU sports that a chain fast food place would make an absolute killing.

    Can it be both? It would help me conveniently finance my auto parts.

    Re: What are they building??

    Its a new hotel. Have to think that a fast food place will eventually open out there. That northwest corner of the intersection of mortensen and South Dakota would be prime development land if Kum and Go hadn't bought it (for 3+ mill) seemingly out of fear of a competing gas station being part of any new development.

    Prime spot for a Hardee's I think. Surprised that hasn't made it to Ames yet.

    Used to be 3 of them, 20 years ago:
    1. South Duff (where Panera is)
    2. Mall (where Jimmy John's is, but more space)
    3. Campustown (around Battles)

    Hardee's made it to Ames a long time ago, and then made it's way out sometime in the late 90s.
