Streets of West Chester launches Phase II of retail development
Cincinnati — The Streets of West Chester, a 167,638-sq.-ft. lifestyle center near Cincinnati, is kicking off the pre-development leasing and marketing for the second phase of its retail center with a 200,000-sq.-ft. planned expansion slated to open in spring 2016.
The Streets of West Chester expansion will join the opening of the new Bass Pro, beginning construction this summer, adjacent to The Streets, and will provide shoppers with new retail, restaurants and entertainment.
“The development of these two new retail locations represents the largest concentration of boutique-like retail amenities in the West Chester area,” said Judith C. Boyko, Township Administrator of West Chester. “These are the type of retail destinations our diverse and sophisticated residents demand, and we expect both to be very successful footholds in our retail fabric.”
A significant expansion has always been part of the master plan for the Streets of West Chester, according to owner LPC Retail. The company purchased the center earlier this year, and is moving forward with the original vision for the property, which includes specialty and big-box retail space as well as additional restaurant destinations. The first phase of The Streets of West Chester includes 167,638 sq. ft. of premier retail, entertaining and dining amenities. The center is currently anchored by AMC West Chester 18Theatres, Barnes & Noble, P.F. Chang’s China Bistro, Bravo! Cucina Italiana, Mitchell’s Fish Market, and the recently added Ann Taylor Loft.
At the end of 2013, Bass Pro Shops purchased 22 acres just south of the Streets of West Chester for its new store.
“We consider this location ground zero for the Greater Cincinnati and Dayton markets, and look forward to serving the entire region with a new retail attraction that will benefit from its proximity to I-275, as well as its adjacency to the existing and future retail amenities,” said Mike Dunham, director of real estate at Bass Pro. “We’re beginning construction this summer, with plans to open in 2015.”
To capitalize on the current retail momentum, LPC Retail has appointed JLL’s local retail leasing experts to bring the phase two of its development to life. JLL’s Jenn Williams and Melissa Ruther will spearhead the leasing of the retail expansion. Projected ground-breaking is scheduled for fall 2015 with completion scheduled in spring 2016.
