Former Matthews Motors Building Could Become Matthews Market
The site formerly home to Matthews Motors in West U. may soon be reincarnated as Matthews Market – a grocery store with adjacent shopping center. Jim Reid and Walter Stockard, acting through 6203 Edloe Partners, L.P. and Stockard Realty Partnership, have submitted plans to the City of West U. for the properties at 6203 and 6205 Edloe.
The plans call for renovations to the former auto repair shop at 6203 Edloe for use as a grocery store, as well as widening the current 3-foot concrete walkway to 8 feet. No renovations are scheduled for 6205 Edloe, which will retain the designation of shopping center.
Although artwork on the building is advertising a dog bar and reads, “where there is love, there will be food,” the plans have yet to receive approval from the Zoning and Planning Commission. City representatives said the developers hope to present the plans for approval at the Feb.12 ZPC meeting.
