Since new construction and other projects in the Texarkana area are announced in this forum, I thought I'd create this thread so these kinds of things could be posted here.

Thanks for the update Poindexter. I wonder has the new mall that was supposed to be built a couple years ago, has that been cancelled or will that break ground at a later date?

Right. I can't tell you how many times I've heard about big proposals coming to town only to hear it was false, like the local business man from New Boston who was said to bring thousands of jobs to the area but it was all a scam. Anyone have news about the old County Market building. Last time I was over on that side of town it was being fixed up.

for on the road drivers, we need more convenience stores that have the recreation rooms and private showers. seriously, that may not be your first thought on new businesses, but OTR drivers pass through the Texarkana area constantly, and nothing gives a city a better name to that community than a full service rest stop for the transportation industry.

I also remember empty promises....When Mayor Shipp was mayor there was suppose to be a nice shopping center built around where the new Wendys is on Stateline.....there was even a large sign showing what it would look like...... I never heard anything else about it. The sign just disappeared.

About 15 years ago I had heard about a hugh mall going in the AR side.

..........AND in the early 80's there was a foreigner that said he was going to turn the Red River area into a "resort" like place. He said us folks in little ole T-town didn't know what we had here, he was going to have 4 & 5 star resturants and hotels galore! There were big write ups in the Gazette about it.......... and as you all know it never happened....... Do any of y'all remember that? I remember it well, I had just moved here and was all excited about how this place was going to really take off. LOL

Thanks Texark66. Canon when is the Texarkana Gazette going to learn to wait and check sources before just airing these stories as news, smdh! Anyway, does anyone know what's possibly going in at the corner of Gibson Lane and Richmond? Last I was out that way I saw land bulldozed.

It sucks that Johnny's closed, they have the best pizza! I think they just chose a horrible location, I hope Larry's is good and does well.

Nothing wrong with the location. The owner came down with cancer.

I had heard about another hospital possibly locating to either the Nash area or on the Arkansas side near I-30. Only time will tell if this is something that will further develop or yet another rumor. I was watching a Youtube vid the other night and the Arkansas side mayor said a major new store is going in on the north side of town but he wouldn't say h name. Here's the vid:
