New fast food restaurant could go downtown

Posted: Friday, Oct 4th, 2013

WATSONVILLE — Four months after a proposal to add a Walgreens downtown fell through, the Watsonville City Council will consider another plan for the spot Tuesday, one that sees demolishing vacant buildings and adding a fast food restaurant.

According to Kurt Overmeyer, the city’s economic development manager, Coastal Realty Investors purchased the property that currently houses the former Oda’s barbershop, Caesar’s Card Room and TV Repair Shop near the corner of Main Street and Riverside Drive, and have a tenant for the first phase of the project.

“They seem to be on a really fast track,” he said. “They’ve been pushing us pretty hard.”

The developer plans to construct a fast food restaurant on the property, but which one is being kept under wraps for now, Overmeyer said.

What the City Council will consider Tuesday is selling a parcel next to the property on 190 Main St., which will then be used as a parking lot.

The developer hasn’t submitted demolition plans yet, but Overmeyer estimated that the buildings could be coming down in six months.
