Improvements to Traffic Flow, Landscaping and Parking

The Disston Plaza Shopping Center owner is Sembler and Forge Capital Partners.  Sembler is a part of the Forge Real Estate Partners III investment fund. Sembler and Forge have made upgrades to the parking lot, sidewalks, and made traffic improvements.   The upgrades are paid for by Sembler, not the city.  And it includes new lighting and landscaping. Also, a new traffic signal at 49th Street was added in front of the plaza, plus a new covered bus stop, and the widening of a section of the road from 38th Avenue to just south of the shopping center.

New Landscaping, covered bus stop and updated store are benefiting the community.

The improvements are benefitting the surround neighborhoods.

As a result of the improvements, the  surrounding neighborhoods are benefiting from the upgrades.  These neighborhoods include Disston Heights, North Midway, Holiday Park, Twin Gables, and Coral Way North.  With all the added improvements, the area continues to see improvements and growth in businesses.
