The Shops at Boardwalk
project under construction

by Ivan Foley
Landmark editor

Construction is proceeding rapidly on another retail development on Barry Road near Interstate 29 and Hwy. 152 in Platte County.

A development known as The Shops at Boardwalk is going in north of Wal-Mart and Lowe's in the southeast quadrant of I-29 and Hwy. 152.

The 136,000 square foot shopping center will feature an open-air design. It is set for completion in June.

The construction is the most recent project of RED Development.

"We're thrilled about the opportunity to add yet another shopping center to the Northland area," said Dan Lowe, partner at RED Development.

"It will bring an exciting mix of retailers and give Platte County residents another upscale, open-air and pedestrian-friendly shopping destination much like the atmosphere at BarryWoods Crossing," he added.

Some of the businesses set to go in at The Shops of Boardwalk include Borders Books & Music, Ann Taylor Loft, Talbots, Chico's, Yankee Candle, Cold Stone Creamery, Planet Sub, Nextel Communications, and Electronics Boutique.

The new shopping center is being built in what is described as a "conservative Southwestern design" featuring unique towers, steel marquees, fabric awnings, varied bricks, stones and stucco finishes.

"Some tenants may open early, we're predicting June, but our official grand opening for the shopping center is Aug. 16," Amy Kraft of the RED marketing staff told The Landmark this week.

New tenants just confirmed this week include Coldwater Creek, J. Jill, Jos. A. Banks, Red Star Tavern, Claires and Chipotle Mexican Grill.

Lowe said The Shops at Boardwalk project is expected to attract two million shoppers each year and generate as much as $65 million in annual sales.
