WestEdge has added national grocery giant Publix Super Markets as an anchor tenant amid a flurry of development and pre-leasing momentum in recent months.
Publix has leased space for a 45,000 square foot store in the 10 WestEdge mixed-use project, which includes an 870-space parking facility, 350 apartments and street-level retail space. Construction is expected to begin in August with completion by third quarter 2018. Meanwhile, pre-leasing momentum continues to climb for the Class A office and research building next door at 22 WestEdge, which will commence in fourth quarter 2016 for a spring 2018 completion. Construction has already begun on the mixed-use 99 WestEdge project.
Today’s announcement compliments a busy time for the WestEdge development team, according to Mack Reese of Gateway Development Services. His firm is working with South City Partners and Charleston-based WRS Realty on the development of the initial buildings and with Michael Maher, CEO of HPF, Inc., on the overall master development activities.
“The Publix lease commitment furthers the credibility of WestEdge and will allow us to create a mixed-use project that will be unique to the Charleston Peninsula and, specifically, to the Medical District and its 15,000 employees,” said Reese.
