MIDLAND - You'll also have a new place to shop in Midland soon.
The Midland Planning and Zoning Commission gave the green light for a new shopping center off of Loop 250 just east of Billingsley, near the new Blue Ridge Apartments.
The lot has been zoned for retail for years but was never developed.
Now, a Lubbock real estate firm is finally taking advantage of the land.
They plan on building a 50,000 square foot open air shopping center.
They are currently signing leases with retailers but they haven't revealed with who.
The Midland City Council is expected to give their final approval in the coming weeks.
