A look at projects proposed in Greater Des Moines area
Several projects are in the planning stages in the Des Moines area. the following are some highlights:
A Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers restaurant is planned at 8550 Birchwood Court in Johnston. A Burger King previously had been on the site. The Johnston City Council on July 17 will consider approving a development agreement with Stahan Parnters LLC, which plans to redevelop the property. If approved, the development agreement would provide the limited liability company $80,000 in the form of a forgivable loan. The money would be used to terminate an existing lease with Burger King and raze the existing structure. The site plan was approved last December.
