    These are the latest businesses coming to the revamped Prices Corner shopping center – The News Journal - June 17, 2020 by Mr HomeBuilder

    Texas A&M researcher Venkatesh Shankar discusses the future of retail with Delaware Online reporter Brandon Holveck. Delaware News Journal

    The Prices Corner shopping center is bustlingonce again.

    Only now it's construction vehicles that fill the center's parking lot, not busy shoppers.

    Three more businesses are set to join the more than 50-year-old shopping center, which is undergoing a large-scale redevelopment that will bring a wave of new shops and restaurants as well as a new look.

    AutoZone, Chase Bank and Two Claws, a Cajun seafood restaurant, have each agreed to deals with the shopping center, according to marketing materials posted by Arrow Real Estate Services.

    They will join previously reported tenants Target and Chick-fil-A.

    Arrow lists late 2020 as the redevelopment's "delivery date." The project will include a new facade for much of the shopping center and two new pad sites in place of the former Sears Auto Center.

    The pad sites, located at the edge of the shopping center along Kirkwood Highway, will be filled by Chick-fil-A and Chase Bank.Chase has openedseveral brick-and-mortar branches throughout northernDelaware over the past year and expects to open abranch in the Newark Shopping Center by August.

    AutoZone will take the place of the former David's Bridal across from Pep Boys Auto, and about 3miles north of theAutoZoneat the Kirkwood Highway and Limestone Road.

    Two Claws opened its first location last summer, taking over the former Kenny's Pan Asian Cuisine location in Governor's Square Shopping Center in Bear. It's slated to fill in between the DTLR shoes and clothing storeand a nail salon.

    Construction crews have made significant progress on Target, which is taking part of the space previously occupied by Sears. Among the changes, the storefront is being recrafted to introducea larger entrance on the left side of the store.

    The space is also being divided to housetwo tenants. A tenant for the second space, totaling roughly 67,000 square feet, has not been announced.

    When asked about a date for opening, a Target spokesperson said the company has plans to open the store "in the coming years." Arrow's materials indicate the store will open later this year.

    The shopping center still has several vacancies, with signs from defunct stores such as Avenue Plus, Payless ShoeSource and RadioShack markingparts of the strip.

    With constructioncurrently concentrated at the former Sears buildings, most of the other businesses in the shopping center are open,but with restrictions due to the coronavirus pandemic.

    Some businesses have already felt the effects of shutdowns earlier this year, most notably J.C. Penney, which is currently the largest store in the shopping center.

    After filing for bankruptcy, J.C. Penney closed more than 150 stores in May. The Prices Corner J.C. Penney and the company's two other Delaware locations survived. Retail experts expect more stores to close, especially those outside marquee malls, if the company doesn't first find a buyer.

    "I dont think that J.C. Penney is going to be one of those companies that emerges,"Camilla Yanushevsky, a retail stock analyst for CFRA Research, said in May. "At the end of the day, I think theyll be liquidating their assets to get some cash back to creditors."

    McKinney approves grant for The Commons at District 121, which will start construction later this year – Community Impact Newspaper - June 17, 2020 by Mr HomeBuilder

    The District 121 corporation received grant funding to develop a lawn space called The Commons at District 121. (Rendering courtesy city of McKinney)

    The development will be located on 0.7 acres of an existing 17.85 acres located at the northeast corner of SH 121 and Alma Road in McKinney. The larger plot of land has been set aside for proposed office, retail, restaurant and hospitality developments in a project called District 121.

    The smaller lawn space, called The Commons at District 121, will be privately maintained and owned by District 121 but publicly accessible, officials said. The lawn will be surrounded by the other proposed buildings along with an adjacent parking garage and a possible hotel with structured parking, per meeting documents.

    [District 121] will be a destination retail, corporate, and restaurant development in McKinney, MCDC President Cindy Schneible said.

    The Commons within District 121 will feature an expansive grass area in front of an approximately 825-square-foot stage with a large LED screen as a backdrop, according to meeting documents. Floor pavers and stamped concrete will be used to designate outdoor rooms. Cushioned seating, tables and umbrellas will be clustered around the perimeter of the lawn area, with portable seating provided throughout the space. There will be areas for outdoor gas fire pits as well as lawn games such as bocce ball and cornhole.

    The Commons is designed to attract and allow/encourage groups, as well as individuals/families, to enjoy an outdoor setting while waiting for a restaurant reservation, immersing in specific programming offerings or simply relaxing, meeting documents stated.

    Space within the park can be used to host programmed events and could serve as an activity center for events such as exercise classes, lectures, streaming sports events and live music, per meeting documents.

    In addition, vendor kiosks can be set up within the space similar to a farmers market and could be either permanent or brought in for special events.

    The District 121 corporation estimates the project will cost $2,040,250, which will be covered by the grant.

    Construction of The Commons is expected to begin in late 2020 and is slated to open to the public by December 2021.

    "I love the project," council member Rainey Rogers said. "I think it is a great thing."

    On Thursday, no more than 80 people will be allowed inside the market aligning with state regulations. Masks and social distancing policies will be enforced. The 20,000 square foot space can only allow 40% of its capacity.

    It represents only one of the many changes the market has undergone to reopen. If you plan on visiting the Public Market on Thursday or in the future, heres what to expect.

    7 New Vendors

    The Worcester Public Market closed in the middle of March due to the coronavirus pandemic. Since that time, a host of new vendors have found homes in the market.

    Akra - An African fusion takeout and juice bar.

    Crate & Howl - A dog supply boutique that features everything pet teepees to bowties.

    Lakeview Community Partners Limited and Artscape Announce the Selection of Local Artists for Exciting Works Set to Animate Lakeview Village in… - June 17, 2020 by Mr HomeBuilder

    MISSISSAUGA, Ontario--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Lakeview Community Partners Limited and Artscape Atelier are thrilled to announce 19 selected GTA artists for over $100,000 in paid work opportunities at Lakeview Village, a transformative 177-acre mixed-use community to be built on Mississauga's waterfront. Sculptor, Ryan Longo; visual artist, Raquel Da Silva; painter, Lynn Taylor; poet, Duke Redbird; visual artist, Daniela Rocha (artist alias Planta Muisca); and 14 muralists, including several from Mississauga, have been chosen to animate the Lakeview Village site with art. The completed pieces will include over 1,600 linear feet of artistic works situated near a massive field of sunflowers set to bloom at the project site this summer.

    We were impressed with the caliber of submissions by each of these artists. Now more than ever, artists have an important role to play in bringing our shared spaces to life. Together, these pieces will anchor the site in its historical roots, convey messages of healing for our present condition, and introduce a hopeful image of the future, said Assaf Weisz, Chief Strategy Officer, Artscape. We look forward to seeing their work at the Lakeview Village site throughout the summer months.

    We are excited to collaborate with Artscape and local artists to create a beautiful and immersive way for community members and visitors to enjoy the Lakeview Village site during the construction process and beyond, said Brian Sutherland, Director of Development, Argo Development Corporation, and development lead for Lakeview Village. We are passionate about placemaking and look forward to welcoming the community back to experience the magic of a horizon of sunflowers at our site again this summer, this time with the stunning integration of original art honouring the waterfront.

    Artist Ryan Longo has been selected to create an Interactive Art/Sculpture to be installed at the top of the sunflower field in July. The finished sculpture will serve as both a focal point and gathering place to view Lake Ontario.

    Raquel Da Silva has been selected to bring life to the construction hoarding with her proposed abstracted flipbook, which explores the theme of reconnecting with the surrounding nature, specifically that which is native to the Mississauga community.

    Lynn Taylor, based in Mississauga, will create a visual land and heritage acknowledgement and poet, Duke Redbird, has also been commissioned to complete the poetic narrative that describes Indigenous life along the waterfront. Both works will also to be incorporated into the construction hoarding design.

    Canadian-Colombian artist Daniela Rocha (Planta Muisca) will paint a nature-inspired mural that will feature animals and vegetation native to the Mississauga region. Her focus on local plants and animals will encourage visitors to embrace and connect with nature during these uncertain times.

    Fourteen other artists will complete the Sunflower Lane Mural Wall Series, a multi-artist mural that will run parallel to the sunflower field to share the message they believe the world needs to hear right now. The selected artists will each produce a mural at the site while honouring social distancing practices. The creation process will be safely filmed, shared with the public via social media channels, and physically revealed this summer, pending regional health measures.

    Each of the artworks will be installed on the current redevelopment site of Lakeview Village, a sustainable mixed-use community and four-season waterfront destination on the former site of the Lakeview Generating Station. Arts and culture will be a central component of the future development, which will combine diverse high-quality housing options for all lifestyles and life stages, with office space, retail and restaurants, trails, parks and green space, and cultural and recreational amenities all connected to transit and the nearby 64-acre Jim Tovey Lakeview Conservation Area.

    Lakeview Community Partners Limited looks forward to welcoming community members and visitors to the Lakeview Village site to celebrate and experience the art of placemaking this summer in a safe manner as COVID-19 health and social distancing measures permit.

    No word on when The Pinnacle will begin construction – Belleville Intelligencer - June 17, 2020 by Mr HomeBuilder

    There has been no movement on development of The Pinnacle, a planned $50 million six storey, 110 condominium project located at the corner of Pinnacle and Bridge Streets on the site of the former Quinte Hotel, which burnt down in December of 2012.TIM MEEKSjpg, BI

    Rumours have been swirling the condo project at the former Quinte Hotel site on Pinnacle Street has been shelved, but Belleville mayor Mitch Panciuk says the city has not heard anything on the subject.

    With the COVID-19 crisis I wouldnt be surprised, but I havent heard anything about the project because we havent spoken with those people in quite some time, Panciuk said.

    Fair Trade Works are the developers of the The Pinnacle, the $50 million six-storey project designed to house 110 condominum units with retail space on the ground floor. The site at the corner of Pinnacle and Bridge streets has been vacant since the Quinte Hotel burned in December of 2012.

    The Pinnacle units range in price from $205,000 to $507,000. The Pinnacle plans include 5,565 feet of courtyard and outdoor kitchen space, a meeting/party room, two lobbies, three elevators, underground parking, a car wash, an electric car charging station and a dog washing station.

    From the City of Bellevilles point of view its a very important property for the downtown that we would love to see developed, but right now its not an urgent priority for us, Panciuk said.

    Once we start to get back to sort of normal we want the Market Square and Memorial Arena and Legion sites to get moving and the former Intelligencer building is back on the market, so the Pinnacle Street property would be another plus to get that done. But its a condo project based on pre-sales and once they get to that threshold I suspect it will get the go-ahead, Panciuk said.

    Meanwhile, the mayor said a cooling centre will be opening at the north end of the Quinte Sports and Wellness Centre this week. Details can be found on the citys website at http://www.belleville.ca

    As well, the mayor announced Monday the Farmers Market will be reopening this Saturday once Hastings Prince Edward Public Health finalizes its plan.

    Some good news, we expect the Belleville Farmers Market to be open this Saturday, Panciuk said in his regular pandemic video address on Facebook. They are working through their final approval from the health board to be able to do it, but the City of Belleville has approved that we open it at George Zegouras Market Square behind City Hall.

    Panciuk said the public will still be required to social distance as per provincial requirements under the current COVID-19 pandemic.

    I think its going to be an appointment pick-up plan, but residents can checkout the Farmers Market website (www.bellevillefarmersmarketon.ca)for updates and further information, he said.

    The mayor also said city hall, which has been closed to the pubic since March 18 due to the COVID-19 crisis, will reopen to the public on Monday by appointment or availability.

    You will be able to come in and pay your bills in person or ask inquiries, apply for licensing or permits, Panciuk said. That means if you call ahead and make an appointment we will be able to get you your scheduled time but if you show up at city hall and if theres availability we will allow you to go through. We are going to have security at the front door managing traffic going in and out.

    The city is still working on a plan to open the Kinsmen Aquatic Centre on Dundas Street East by July 1. There is no timeline for splash pads and the pool at the QSWC to open, Panciuk said.

    Pop-Ups

    Panciuk will launch the 2020 Pop-Ups on the Bay Thursday at West Zwicks Park. To ensure physical distancing, the mayor will make the announcement at 10 a.m., however the Pop-Ups wont officially open at 11 a.m.

    We are excited to have such a diverse selection of vendors participating this year and anticipate the Pop-Ups will be a wonderful addition to our waterfront landscape, Panciuk said.
