The 47th and Mission Corridor has seen incredible growth the past few years. From restaurants repurposing old buildings, like Taco Republic and Lulu’s Noodle Shop, to the new Walmart Neighborhood Market and the renovation of the Northwood shopping center, new and old businesses are thriving. The 47th and Mission Merchants Association is working to capture that energy through regular breakfast meetings of business owners and managers.
On April 26, about 25 business representatives, elected officials, and community activists gathered at Westwood City Hall to hear updates about the 47th and Mission Corridor. Urban planner Zach Flanders from BNIM presented on the progress in the Rosedale Master Plan Update. The Walmart Neighborhood Market donated food for the event.
Flanders said, “Local businesses are an important part of our community. It’s been great to see the improvements made over the past several years and the feedback given [at the breakfast] was important and helpful in driving improvements over the next 10+ years.”
What’s next for the corridor? The Merchants Association will hold another meeting this summer with a focus on the new Westwood Master Plan, which is also under development. The committee is also starting work on corridor branding and a community festival to be held in 2017, highlighting new and old businesses and the unique tri-city collaboration making the progress possible.
