ORLANDO, FL-With construction nearing completion on the 400,000-sf Loop West shopping center, 21 new retailers have signed on for the project, according to its developer.

The retailers are Babies R Us, DSW, Aveda, GNC, GameStop, Zales, Beya, Pearle Vision, Victoria’s Secret, New York & Co., Bath and Body Works, Christopher & Banks, CJ Banks, Tilly’s, Ulta, Books-A-Million and BJ’s Restaurant Brewhouse. Restaurants currently signed are Abuelos, Pei Wei, Bonefish Grill and Tropical Smoothie Café. The retailers will move into the space over the spring and summer months. They join co-anchors JC Penney and Belk, as well as Circuit City and Party City. Those four tenants have already opened for business.

Loop West, which is being developed by Boston-based Wilder Cos., is adjacent to Loop-Orlando, a 440,000-sf shopping center at the corner of John Young and Osceola Parkways. Principal Tom Wilder tells GlobeSt.com that with the additional tenants, the project is 99% pre-leased. “There is only one space left for lease. We expect all the tenants to be moved in by September,” Wilder says

Wilder adds that the Loop West project was successful in attracting tenants that will be complementary to those at the adjacent shopping center. “With this project, we were able to fill some categories that weren’t at the Loop,” he says.

Wilder has one other Florida retail project planned in Punta Gorda, with groundbreaking set later this year. Construction on the Loop-Northborough, MA, is under way with a projected opening in 2009.
