Residential development shifted from east to far west Brownsville during the 1980s, causing a slow down of commercial development in the El Jardin and Southmost areas. Barnard said he was worried back then those neighborhoods would miss out on "generations of growth" as a result of the shift.
There's also the fact that Four Corners gets an awful lot of traffic, notes Mark Barnard, a commercial broker with Coastal Realty.

"I believe there are plenty of people and businesses that would want to be on the east side of Brownsville," Barnard said.
The East Loop project, which is close to breaking ground and which will tie the bridge and the port together and remove heavy trucks from Highway 48, should solve the problem and could even lead to a "reawakening" of the area, Barnard said.
Barnard said the area is still viable despite a northward retail migration that has witnessed the likes of Burlington Coat Factory, Office Depot and Target pulling up stakes and moving north in recent years.
