Businesses booming around a CO carwash

COLORADO SPRINGS, CO — Current plans call for the wash to be surrounded by an apartment complex, multiple restaurants, combination mini golf and batting cages and two c-stores.

COLORADO SPRINGS, CO — A carwash here may be part of a mini retail boom, according to The Gazette.

The May 18 story said the Smudge Dog and Car Wash location already neighbored a Taco Bell and Kwal Paint, and now a new Burger King has opened. A pizza restaurant and a c-store will soon open at the same intersection.

Other planned businesses for the area include a mini golf and batting cage business, more restaurants, another c-store and perhaps an apartment complex.

Until now, retail and commercial development had bypassed the area, but it has picked up recently due to the development of nearby shopping centers.

Ed Lohman, a developer and owner of some property in the area, said the poor economy of the past few years slowed the progression of development. “Sometimes it’s a fast pace, and sometimes, because of the economy, it’s a slow pace,” Lohman said in the story.
