Construction on the Eastbridge Town Center is underway. Evergreen developer Tyler Carlson says retail tenants will have access to their space in September and he thinks some will be ready to open when King Soopers opens in November. Some of the businesses won’t open until December or January.
Evergreen has also purchased a .86 acre lot north of MLK (across from the town center) where they want to build a single story 8500 square foot building with three tenants. The current zoning allows similar uses as the town center, but for some unexplainable reason it has waivers that would prohibit a financial or medical/dental use. Evergreen has applied for rezoning that would allow those uses, and has interested tenants for those uses. They are working with neighbors and the city on vehicle access to the property. The entire empty lot is 2.5 acres. Evergreen has told Forest City they are interested in developing the rest of the lot in addition to the .86 acres they have already purchased.
