Sandy's Plaza, 1344 Knox Abbott Drive: 2010   3 comments

Posted at 2:24 am in Uncategorized

For Sale By Bank the sign reads at this colorful strip mall on Knox Abbott Drive.

It appears that Sandy's Famous Hot Dogs is pretty much the only business left here, and I'm sure they will probably continue under the new owners when and if.

I'm not exactly sure why this place didn't prosper. I find it rather attractive, with all the bright colors, and it's not particularly hard to get to, or to get in and out of.

I don't believe the Taco Bell building on the west side of the plaza is officially part of it, but its re-incarnation seems to have gone wrong, leaving it empty as well.

UPDATE 27 August 2011: The plaza has been sold and Sandy's is gone.

UPDATE 5 April 2012 -- The Chinese immersion charter school is up and running:

  1. There's a Russian Orthodox church in the very back corner...can't see it in those shots.

    The Taco Bell building has a separate sign saying 'available' so I would imagine it isn't included in the strip mall sale.

    Love Chevy has gone from being a full scale car dealership to a used only sales, and NAPA service place. I'm interested in watching how all that plays out.

  2. I think Love Chevy did the same thing that Dick Dyer Toyota did when that dealer moved to Killian Rd. Both dealers moved their main dealership to a more prosperous part of town and rebranded their old dealership as a service dept and used cars (Love) or scooters (Dick Dyer).

  3. Sandy'd is now closed. Chinese language immersion school is using the whole plaza.
