La Mirada~Demolition work is underway at the Crossroads Shopping Center at Imperial Highway and La Mirada Boulevard.
The demolition work will clear the site for the development of a 13,650 square foot Walgreens Pharmacy drug store. Construction on the new drug store is set to begin in November. Other improvements at the shopping center will include the a 30,000 square-foot supermarket and other retail shops. This project will be completed in 2013.
“This is the first development to be guided by the modern design standards set forth in the Imperial Highway Specific Plan,” says City Manager Tom Robinson. “We are looking forward to the economic benefits and aesthetic improvements this project will bring to our community.”
Demolition work will continue at Crossroads through the coming weeks. Storm drain line relocation at the site will be completed by the end of September, and grading work will follow in October.
