This week’s View of the Neighborhood is a report on the modernization of Port Aransas. By modernization, I am referring to the new construction going on about town. Yes as sad as it is, our little town is getting new buildings.
The first photo is a brand new Dollar General Store that opened this week
I tried to get an art shot but as you can see it is still a Dollar General store.
Turning to something really positive. Our Art Center is getting a new building. Here is an artist rendition of the finished building.
This photo shows the progress to date.
So you know the improvement here is a shot of the current Art Center building
Now on to new tourist facilities. This is a photo of new short-term rental units going up.
This shot lets you see that the units are a courtyard with a pool in the middle.
Here is a new retail center going up. There will also be short-term rentals on the second floor.
A report on progress would be incomplete without a couple of chains. Here is the famous Texas fast food chain Whataburger.
And (Ta Da) a brand new Domino’s.
