At least 20 retailers have opened in Prospect

At least 20 retailers have opened in the past three years in the commercial district of Prospect, in Longmont, Colorado, reports developer Kiki Wallace. A restaurant is going to move into a concrete building known as Johnson’s Corner, which is described in Jack Kerouac’s famous book On the Road as a place where the Beat writer sits under a tree and naps. The Art Deco structure was moved to Prospect in 2003 when the expansion of a highway left-turn lane in Longmont threatened it with demolition. It’s one of three buildings that have been moved into the 80-acre development, now 65 percent complete.
