QUOTES FROM W. BROAD STREET PROPERTY OWNERS
“We are constantly judged by our location and how easy and convenient it is for our customers to get here and home. This project will create an ambiance for the 10,000 visitors that come to the casino each day.” Ameet Patel, VP and GM, Hollywood Casinos
“My mom and dad started this business 42 years ago and we’ve been on the west side ever since. We have seen businesses come and go, but we stayed and have been waiting for something like this to happen. Now people can walk down the street and feel good.” Dayna Sokol, President, Tee Jayes Country Place.
“I’m always one to go along. I’ve lived there all my life. I think 270 and Broad has potential to be revived, more than happy to partner with the investment. The bottom line is it has potential. I think it will be positive for the image of the area.” Skip Yassenoff, Owner, Westland Flea Market
“Improvement will help everyone in the area. More traffic means more investors who will be encouraged by the area.” Mohammed Jallaq, West Side Auto Group
“We own a multi-tenant building. We are hoping this project will give the property a nice look to make it attractive to our tenants. We feel the improvements will add to the value of the property and future projects.” Daniel McCabe, Board Member, West Broad Building LLC
“Always said the best side is the west side. We realize our challenges, and what we need to do to not become the most vacant but the most vibrant.” Chris Haydocy, President, Haydocy Automotive and Weston Vision.
“We have been on the west side for 35 years. Once, this was a lively part of town, but it went downhill, especially in the last 10 years. Investing in this project can only help improve the area. It can’t get worse.” Bobby Layman, Owner of Layman Chevrolet
“We have owned several parcels over the past 40 years on W. Broad. We believe in the west side. We felt in doing this with our fellow land owners we would get a lot more accomplished a lot sooner. All along Broad Street these improvements are going to enhance the properties and the property values, making it a gateway to the entire area.” Jeff Block, Managing Partner, West Broad Partners
