Cedar Rapids Seeks New Proposals for A&W Property on Ellis Boulevard
By Rick Smith, Reporter
CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa - The flood-damaged, former A&W Family Restaurant on Ellis Boulevard NW is back in play.
The city of Cedar Rapids on Friday said it is seeking proposals from developers who want to redevelop the A&W property at 1126 and 1132 Ellis Blvd. NW.
Proposals are due at City Hall by 11 a.m. June 10. Interested parties can attend a meeting at 4 p.m. on May 1 at City Hall to discuss the property.
The City Council had agreed to work with local developer Baron Stark, who planned to renovate the A&W and reopen it as an A&W. However, Stark missed a deadline this week to gain financing for the project, and the city terminated its arrangement with him and the property.
Those with questions can call the city’s Community Development Department at 286-5041.
