New Market Concept to be Part of Grandview Crossing Development
Grandview Crossing developer Thrive Companies has unveiled plans for what will be a centerpiece of the 55-acre project.
The Collective Market will occupy 22,000 square feet of space and include multiple food vendors as well as event and traditional restaurant space.
“The market concept brings a dynamic amenity to the project that will provide a wide range of food and beverage options for our residential and office tenants,” says Thrive Principal & CFO Joel Lilly.
The Collective will feature a total of 10 to 12 stalls, eight to 10 of them prepared food vendors, with potential space for a couple of retail concepts. Lilly says a grocer is a possibility, but they haven’t had discussions with that type of user yet.
Thrive will aim for local vendors to fill the space. The developer has been looking to food purveyors already established at other markets around town for some early conversations, but there are no commitments yet.
“We have our marketing/leasing package finalized and will start having detailed discussions with prospects starting in the coming weeks now that we have our design finalized,” Lilly says.
The Collective will have seating for 600 across indoor and outdoor spaces. Adjacent to Grandview Crossing’s planned 3.5 acre community park, the market will feature an indoor/outdoor bar and pavilion to support food service during events at the park.
“We hope The Collective market and park becomes a top destination for events planned in the Grandview area,” Lilly says.
Rounding out The Collective experience is a 3,000 square foot, second-floor events space that will also serve as overflow seating on busy nights and have its own separate bar. The concept will also include a 3,200 square foot anchor restaurant tenant.
The Collective will be near the center of the development, accessible from the main road into the site off of Dublin Road, with a new traffic signal planned for that intersection. It will be part of a larger building holding a number of other amenities for the development, including a fitness center, community space and leasing office, as well as 57 residential units spread across three floors.
In total, the Grandview Crossing development will include 1,000 plus apartments, a hotel, 250,000 square feet of office space and over 100,000 square feet of retail space.
BMW Financial Services has committed to a significant portion of the office space, relocating its 900 employees from Hilliard. Other commitments in the retail sector include a daycare and a nail salon. Lilly says discussions are underway with multiple other restaurant concepts that would take up 11,000 of the 18,000 square feet of restaurant space available.
Grandview Crossing is being built in phases, with construction on The Collective’s portion of the project slated to begin in September. Thrive anticipates a grand opening for The Collective in February or March of 2023.
