MOBILE, Ala – It may be just a few weeks before the city of Mobile learns which major retail stores will be coming to the city.
George Alexandris, the Vice President of Development for the Hutton Company, the contractor for the McGowin Park project told council members at the pre-council meeting Tuesday, an announcement could come from the retailers within the next 30 days.
Alexandria was questioned by council members about a request on the agenda to authorize McGowin Park LLC to sell lots to the retailers prior to the infrastructure changes at the site.
It has been rumored that Costco is one of the retailers planning to open on the location off Satchel Paige Drive in Mobile.
Alexandris said if the developer receives approval Tuesday to move forward with the sale of the lots, work on the site would begin in the coming weeks.
