The former Border’s location in West Lafayette is being split up into eight retail spaces.
Wabash Landing LLC spokesperson Jim Curtis says lease negotiations are already underway for some of the spots.
In addition, two new businesses will move into the shopping complex.
Cold Stone Creamery and Rocky Mountain Chocolate will take over the Snow Bear Frozen Custard site, and Domino’s will replace Topper’s Pizza.
Curtis is hoping the city’s Redevelopment Commission can help develop a plan to bring more businesses to the pedestrian walkway.
He says the fact that those storefronts can’t be seen from the street makes it more difficult for them to attract customers.
Commissioners have agreed to pay for an appraisal of the area, but have not committed to any specific improvements.
