The Fresh Market specialty grocer to anchor redeveloped shopping center.
Regency Centers Corporation, an operator and developer of grocery-anchored shopping centers, announced plans Monday to redevelop the former Loehmann’s Plaza in Atlanta, and rename it Brighten Park.
Regency has secured a lease with The Fresh Market to anchor the development at the intersection of North Druid Hills and Briarcliff Roads, as the specialty grocer’s thirteenth Georgia location.
“The redevelopment of the former Loehmann’s Plaza signals a fresh start for this center,” Andre Koleszar, Vice President and Regional Officer at Regency, said in the announcement.
“We are excited about the new direction we’re taking with the unique and vibrant addition for the North Druid Hills neighborhood.”
The Fresh Market will occupy the 24,400-square-foot space formerly belonging to Loehmann’s, joining a tenant mix that includes Panera Bread, Starbucks, and Zoe’s Kitchen. The center has over 62,000 square feet of available space, according to Regency’s website. Additional tenants to the center will be announced as deals are signed, according to the announcement.
The center is getting an “innovative look” with improved facades and signage as well as aesthetic upgrades that include LED lighting for better visibility and lower energy consumption.
Construction will begin this month, and continue through January 2015.
