Commercial businesses pushed the city’s building permits to an impressive $9,310,381 in April, according to the monthly report released by Planning and Zoning Director Shontrell Roque.
It’s by no means the biggest, but perhaps the most interesting is a sign at 5123 University Parkway where there will be a new Whataburger. The restaurant will be next to the IHOP near the highway. The value of the sign is $20,000.
Although the building is nearing completion, among the April permits is one with an appraisal of $7,170,893 for Legacy Jeep Dealership at 1882 Hwy. 504, also on the freeway.
The building that once housed The Capitol Federal Credit Union at 926 University Parkway is being renovated for sale with the permit worth $32,300.
