Chicago, Ill. — Whole Foods Market has signed a 45,150-sq.-ft. lease to anchor the second phase of The Mayfair Collection, a large-scale, mixed-use development in Wauwatosa, Wis. It will be the specialty grocer’s second store in the Milwaukee metropolitan area.
Plans for the second phase of the center also include approximately 50,000 sq. ft. of junior anchor retail space, a mix of upscale bars and restaurants, a bank branch and a 140-room hotel.
HSA Commercial Real Estate, which owns, manages and leases the property, plans to break ground on the second phase this spring with a planned opening for Whole Foods early in 2016.
Phase I of The Mayfair Collection adaptively repurposed functionally obsolete warehouse buildings along Highway 45 into new, contemporary retail environments to be occupied by Nordstrom Rack, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Saks Fifth Avenue Off 5th, Old Navy, Ulta Beauty and others. The grand opening for Phase I is scheduled for April 3. Proposed future phases of the center include multifamily, office and medical facilities.
TOA Architects is the project architect and Premier Design + Build is the general contractor for the first two phases.
