New IGA being built at North Green River Rd.

Posted: Updated:
EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) -

Construction is already underway at North Green River Road and Heckel Road on a new IGA Mini Mart complete with a gas station.

It's a prime location with the new ball fields under construction just across the street.

The neighbor who lives directly next to the new IGA tells us he sold part of his land to the company.

While the truck noise can be irritating in the mornings that neighbor says he doesn't have any plans to move just yet.
 
County officials say anytime land can be converted into retail and commercial business it brings additional tax revenues that the county desperately needs. 

Brittany Binder lives just two doors down and says she has mixed emotions about the growing area. 

"At first I was kind of angry that my private countryside home that I just bought was going to be next to a gas station," says Binder. Then I found out it was going to be a deli, a gas station, a convenience store. So I think it will be more convenient for me overall."

No word yet on when this project will be complete.
