Sendik’s Food Market to co-anchor The Corners of Brookfield
Milwaukee — The Marcus Corp. announced that Sendik’s Food Market will open a 32,000-sq.-ft. grocery store at The Corners of Brookfield, an open-air town center development in the Town of Brookfield, Wisconsin.
The Balistreri-owned and operated grocer will be located on the Bluemound Road side of the 19-acre site at the intersection of I-94, Barker Road and Bluemound Road at the main entrance to the shopping center.
“The Corners is an ideal location to serve the Waukesha County community,” said Ted Balistreri, one of the family co-owners of Sendik’s. “The site offers easy access for our guests from the Goerke’s Corners interchange, ample parking, and is sure to become a premier retail destination in southeastern Wisconsin.”
Demolition of existing buildings on The Corners site is underway and construction is slated to start this fall, according to Katie Falvey, director of real estate for The Marcus Corp. “The entire project including both anchors, Von Maur and Sendik’s, and the retail stores and restaurants, will open in fall 2016,” said Falvey.
The Corners, a mixed-use, 460,000-sq.-ft. development, includes Wisconsin’s first Von Maur department store and is one of the only ground-up, fashion-oriented open-air centers currently under development anywhere in the U.S. The project is expected to create 325 construction jobs for two years and over 1,000 permanent jobs once complete, including more than 100 full- and part-time Sendik’s associates.
Previously announced tenants include Arhaus Furniture, Chico’s, Hot Mama, Kilwins and White House Black Market. Restaurants opening in The Corners include The Lowlands Group (Café Hollander), Colectivo Coffee and Grimaldi’s Pizza. The Corners also features 150 modern, luxury apartments and lofts. Milwaukee-based Mandel Group is directing development of the residential component.
