FEDERAL WAY, WA-Opus Northwest LLC has plans for a shopping center here, but may find opposition from tenants currently occupying the site. The company, a Portland, OR-based member of the Minneapolis-based Opus Group, has an option to purchase 20 acres on South 348th St. and Pacific Highway S., and reportedly plans to break ground on the center next summer.

According to reports, Opus is negotiating with supermarket, drugstore and several major retail chains as prospective tenants in the 250,000-sf complex, to be known as Opus Crossing. Existing businesses on the property, including a restaurant, hotel, Evergreen Truck Stop and Flying J Travel Plaza, would need to be demolished to make way for the project.

An Opus spokesperson was not immediately available for comment, but the company may have to buy out some leases to make it happen. When asked about plans for relocation, a source at the privately-owned Flying J tells GlobeSt. “We have every intention of seeing out our lease here, which has another three years.”
