Triple Crown Realty Trust has started preliminary work at the new Steeple Bay mixed-use development at I-235 in Wichita, Kan., where Camping World and Gander Outdoors will open next year. 

The Wichita Eagle reported that storm shelters and mobile home pads have been razed as will the former Lakeshore Club.

“It looks completely different today than it did last Friday,” says Jeff Lowrance, property development manager for Lange Real Estate. “Everything that was there is going away.”

Marcus Lemonis’ two stores will anchor the development when they open in the second quarter next year. The 44,000-square-foot Gander Outdoors and the 33,000-square-foot Camping World will be situated by a lake and use the space between the stores and the lake for product displays.
