Longtime Yorkville residents will remember the northwest corner of Routes 47 and 34 as the site of the old Countryside shopping center.
The center is long gone, but the site has become a beehive of construction activity over the past several months. Currently under construction on the property are the Holiday Inn Express and Suites hotel, the Flight Tasting Room and Bottle Shoppe, and Hacienda Real Mexican restaurant.
In addition, renovations are continuing immediately north of the hotel site in an existing building for Grace, a coffee and wine bar. All of the businesses are expected to open this year.
