A restaurant, a dental office and a jewelry store are coming to Christenbury Corners, according to the developer.

Thompson Thrift Retail Group (TTRG) announced this week the closing on construction financing for the last undeveloped lot located in front of their Christenbury Corners retail development in Concord, North Carolina.

Christenbury Corners

The final cornerof Christenbury Corners is being developed with a Brownlee Jewelers, Aspen Dental and First Watch The Daytime Cafe scheduled to open by the end of the year.

The new site, located at Christenbury Parkway and Derita Road, will be home to two multi-tenant buildings and include Aspen Dental, First Watch, and Brownlee Jewelers.

“We are extremely excited to bring the two final buildings out of the ground at this development,” said Andy Misiaveg and Darrell Palasciano, the Landlord third party leasing representatives, at The Shopping Center Group, LLC. “We began assembling the land for the entire shopping center, with Thompson Thrift Retail Group(TTRG) back in 2013, and after six years it is definitely rewarding to see the final product completed with these last two buildings. The leasing demand has far outpaced anyone’s initial expectations, and we are continuing to be surprised by the tenant’s, higher than expected sales performance in the development.”

The property is beside Andy’s Frozen Custard and in front of Kohl’s.

Concord utility crews were on site Monday as preparation begins for construction.

“The growth of the Concord market, and overall success of Christenbury Corners, continues to drive TTRG’s desire to be a part of this community,” said Ryan Menard, Vice President, Director of Development, TTRG. “In our eyes, North Carolina, and specifically the greater Charlotte market, is full of opportunity for new and redevelopment.”

Construction on the multi-tenant buildings is scheduled to commence the second quarter with tenant openings expected in the fourth quarter of this year.
