Developers continue to work on Corridor Plaza projects | News, Sports, Jobs
Corridor Plaza continues to achieve significant milestones in the multi-million dollar, multi-year reinvestment and redevelopment of the former Crossroads Mall.
Plat 2, located at the southern end of the project site, is expected to be completed in July. This will include the opening of The Strip Center, a 9,500 square foot building and the future home of Teriyaki Madness and Clean Laundry. Customers will be able to access it from South 29th Street or via the new road connecting 5th Avenue South to 29th Street from the south.
“We expect to announce two more tenants for the Center of the Strip this summer,” said BJ Stokesbary, spokesperson for the Corrido Plaza project. “Completion of Plat 2 will also open up the development of Lots 7 and 8 and the Power Center located in Lot 12.”
The power center will provide space for four to six junior box retailers.
Demolition of the mall’s remaining structure is scheduled to begin in September. This will kick off Plat 3, which includes the final route connecting Corridor Plaza from north to south. Along this route will be the planned pavilions and plazas as well as the entertainment venue and hotel. Dish 3 is expected to be completed by summer 2023.
“In addition to the physical work that continues here at Fort Dodge, our project partners and local leaders are busy continuing to recruit retailers,” said Stokesbary.
The developer, broker, and City of Fort Dodge officials attended the ICSC conference May 22-24 in Las Vegas.
“The ICSC event allowed us to tell the Fort Dodge story to several national retailers and encourage them to invest in our community,” said city development manager Chad Schaeffer.
ICSC Las Vegas, organized by the International Council of Shopping Centers, is well known as one of the world’s largest conferences for the shopping center industry. Held annually in May, the conference attracts negotiators, real estate professionals and industry experts from around the world.
“It’s a huge opportunity to network and do business,” said Schaeffer.
“The project team is looking forward to starting the final phase of demolition and infrastructure this year,” said Stokesbary. “We are preparing to sign leases for the power center and announce junior anchors who will move into this space, hopefully in late summer or early fall.”
