High-end house ware retailer Williams-Sonoma and Pottery Barn join the list of confirmed tenants at the Shops at Stonefield, the project’s developer, South Carolina-based Edens, announced Tuesday.
Those stores are expected to join California-based Trader Joe’s, a Regal IMAX Cinema with stadium style seating and 14 screens, a Burtons Grill, Travinia Italian Kitchen and Pier 1 Imports, which is expected to relocate from an existing location on U.S. 29.
Locally based outdoor gear retailer Blue Ridge Mountain Sports is also slated to move its flagship store from Barracks Road Shopping Center to Stonefield. And groundbreaking on a six-story, 137-room Hyatt hotel at Stonefield is also expected before the end of the year.
Trader Joe’s and some of the other stores and restaurants in the center are slated to open in November. The announcement did not list specific opening dates for individual businesses.
“We have been extremely meticulous in creating just the right merchandise mix for The Shops at Stonefield, in an effort to establish a vibrant and comfortable experience that shoppers share with one another,” Jodie McLean, Edens president and chief investment officer, said in the announcement.
The announcement adds that the center’s Bond Street “will be the vibrant heart of the shops, with tree-lined wide sidewalks and open plazas throughout to allow the community to gather together.”
Several new traffic signals along the U.S. 29 corridor have been added and intersections have been reconfigured to accommodate the new center.
Edens said the project is expected to generate approximately $85 million in new tax revenues over a 10-year period. This project is also expected to provide approximately 1,775 jobs during construction and 870 permanent jobs after completion.
The project is located at U.S. 29 and Hydraulic Road. For more information on Stonefield visit edens.com.
