Studio 28 is History
28 West is the Future
by Janice Limbaugh
As the demolition of Studio 28 began on Tuesday morning, cars filled with curious onlookers and sentimental locals paraded through the parking lot all day long. A line up of parked cars watching the demolition was reminiscent of an old drive-in theater – but on this day, the demolition of the world’s former largest movie theater was the main feature. Be advised that should you go, bring your own refreshments. This show is going to last about two-weeks and have plenty of intermissions. But it’s at the end this show when 20 acres of prime business property sit open and available that the suspense really begins. What will fill the void?
Here’s a preview of coming attractions or rather a long term vision for this area by the Wyoming Downtown Development Authority. Picture this: 28th Street as a walkable town center in the heart of Wyoming, economically vibrant and sustainable with businesses and shops, green space and landscaping, detailed building facades, town homes, condos, and convenient parking. This community effort is called 28 West! Click here to see what Wyoming’s future neighborhood may look like.
