CVS to present plan to Triple S

-A A +A

Four months after taking over Smith-McKenney in the Village Plaza shopping center in Shelbyville, CVS will move its store to the intersection of U.S. 60 and the Shelbyville Bypass, where the condemned Wesley Apartments now stand.

The company presented its long-awaited development plan to the Triple S Planning Commission at its meeting at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at Stratton Center.

The plan calls for a 13,225-square-foot retail center, with a pharmacy and drive-through, and includes 69 parking spaces.

The owners of the 7.6-acre lot that contains the apartments also are requesting that the lot be divided into Lot 1 and Lot 2.

The plan for CVS to build on the parcel of the long-vacated apartments first was speculated in 2009, and a preliminary plan that included CVS and possible a strip mall and fast-food restaurant was submitted to Triple S.

Triple S Executive Director Ryan Libke said in July that he had been working with CVS officials.

Since that time, CVS has purchased Smith-McKenney and has plans to open a store in Eminence.

There are no plans yet for the area around the proposed new CVS in Shelbyville.
