New Heritage Park Retail Opening on Hickman Road
New construction has a way of popping up overnight. Where there was once a patch of empty land, suddenly there’s a place to meet with things to do, buy and eat. Waukee residents will notice such new construction as they drive down Hickman Road. One new building is going up in front of Life Time Fitness and another next to Kum & Go in Urbandale.
The two buildings, collectively known as Heritage Park Retail, will have plenty of room for business development in the 8,125- and 7,425-square-foot spaces. Collectively, the buildings are designed to host nine different businesses.
According to Jeffrey D. Stanbrough, CCIM, CPM, of Stanbrough Realty Company, the outside shells of the buildings should be done in about two months, but tenant improvement—the interior development of the storefronts—has already begun.
First on the list of new businesses is the “freaky fast” Jimmy John’s, perfect for a quick sandwich or lettuce wrap (and let’s not forget the cookies). A joint venture of Caribou Coffee and Einstein Bros. Bagels will come together for a caffeine and carb-filled storefront. There will also be a nutrition store, offering a myriad of health products, and Fresh Fit Meals, which will serve up nutritious meals to-go or for on-site consumption.
There’s still time for new businesses to lay claim to the hot spot, but interested buyers should act fast. “We expect the building to fill up pretty quickly,” said Stanbrough. “It’s right off the interstate and on a highway, and it’s in the middle of everything.”
Plus, with two large monument signs marking the shops, it will be hard to drive by without swinging through. Ninety-four parking spaces have been allocated for the development, ensuring plenty of convenient parking for visitors.
