Construction at the Grand Parkway Town Center, a 65-acre mixed-use development at the corner of the Grand Parkway and Hwy. 249, could begin in early 2023, said David Meyers, director of leasing with NewQuest Properties, in a phone call to Community Impact Newspaper on Jan. 7. Meyers said the site is fully engineered and “shovel ready.”

The development was previously set to open in the summer of 2018 and feature Kroger and Sam’s Club as anchor tenants, Community Impact Newspaper previously reported. NewQuest Properties then said in 2019 the commercial real estate firm was re-evaluating its use of the site for the Grand Parkway Town Center with a possible retail, office and medical space development proposed at that time, Community Impact Newspaper reported.

“Several years ago we kind of pulled the plug when we lost our big grocer, but we’re back engaged now working on the project,” Meyers said.

Meyers said NewQuest Properties, which has owned the land for more than 25 years, will spend most of 2022 finishing up deals with potential tenants, including two major box stores to anchor the project. Meyers said he could not provide additional information on what the major stores would be as of Jan. 7.

The development will include entertainment and restaurant options and will be mostly commercial and retail development, Meyers said.


According to a site plan posted by NewQuest Properties, a number of businesses are proposed for the development, including American Furniture, Burlington, Starbucks and Chick-fil-A.
