The project will be around 48,000 square feet, spread across seven buildings, according to Ryder Jeanes with CLD Realty, broker of the development.
"The reason we're developing, obviously, is there's darn near 3,000 houses in Sunfield right now, and there's hardly a lick of retail," Jeanes told the council at a March 7 meeting. "Retail follows rooftops."
The location does not necessarily warrant national tenants and will consist largely of local businesses. There are a couple leases already in the works, including Smoothie King, which has already been executed, and a UPS store, Jeanes added. Other prospective tenants include a nail salon, restaurants and bars, a bagel shop, and more.
The first businesses are estimated to open in late 2024.
