Expensive Bayfront Kiosks Sit Empty for Three Years

CORPUS CHRISTI - Voters approved $15.5 million in changes to the Corpus Christi bayfront 9 years ago that included kiosks next to the seawall, a bathroom facility, some wind turbines and the splash fountain.

Those snack bar kiosks remain empty across from the American Bank Center three years after completion.

We contacted the city to try to find out why. According to the Parks and Recreation Department that's because no one wants to lease it.

"We've had one person call once and a few conversations but no interest," says Michael Morris of Parks and Rec. "why?" we asked. "I have no idea its a great question."

Morris says he des doesn't think the rent is the problem. The city is only asking $200 or $300 a month and it's willing to negotiate.

For now, the kiosks voters paid for sit vacant generating no revenue.
