West Chester, Ohio -- Jacksonville, Fla.-based Regency Centers said it has begun construction to renovate Beckett Commons shopping center, located in West Chester, Ohio.
The center remodel will include demising vacant space into six additional side shop spaces, new exterior façade and awnings, upgraded signage, new roof and HVAC units.
“Increased demand for smaller retail spaces prompted the renovation and space reconfiguration, which in turn will help us to maintain our position as the top grocery-anchored center in the affluent Beckett Ridge market,” explained Jason Gibson, Regency Centers senior leasing agent. “Furthermore, the work will be completed within 120 days by May, which is very fast considering the area’s climate.”
Three retailers, totaling 16,708 sq. ft., have signed leases for retail space and will open in the spring. Advance Auto Parts, has leased 6,300 sq. ft., Plato’s Closet has leased 5,204 sq. ft., and Once Upon a Child has leased 5,204 sq. ft.
Beckett Commons is a 121,316-sq.-ft. neighborhood center anchored by Kroger, along with national retailers The UPS Store, GNC and Subway.
