     Developer and property owner Randy Case said he sorted through numerous ideas over several years for a sliver of land his family owned on the southeast corner of Nevada Avenue and Kiowa Street.   The property, about one-third of an acre, is the former site of a bank drive-up facility.  Case, whose family has owned and developed land around town for years, said he considered lofts, a multistory building and a hotel for the site.  He also entertained deals to sell it to other developers or to the city.  Finally, after none of those deals took off, another investor made an acceptable offer earlier this year.  Given the economy’s downturn, Case said, he sold the property.
