CHARLOTTE, NC- Crosland LLC has started construction on Blakeney Crossing, a 87,000-sf retail center at the 270-acre Blakeney multi-use development located at the intersection of Rea and Ardrey-Kell roads. The development, two miles from Interstate 485, is planned to include retail, office space, a two-acre park and a residential component, all connected through a network of sidewalks and trails.

The Blakeney Crossing shopping center will be anchored by national retailers Best Buy and PetSmart, with 37,000 sf of additional shop space to include Just Fresh, Winestore, Asian Fusion, Salsarita’s Fresh Cantina and Omaha Steaks. Both anchor tenants are expected to open in this year’s fourth quarter.

“The Blakeney area boasts some of the highest income levels in the Carolinas and has enjoyed a 70-percent growth in population in a three-mile radius over the last six years,” says Ryan Preston, director of leasing for Crosland. “We look forward to further complementing this area and providing residents a great shopping experience close to home.”

Charlotte, NC-based Crosland is a privately held company that has an asset portfolio and projects under way with a total market value of over $2 billion. The company specializes in developing and managing retail, office, multifamily and mixed-use projects.
