Walls are going up at the site of a new shopping center on the city’s southwest side.
Bourn Cos. development, Fashion Park Shopping Center, on Irvington Road and Interstate 19, got three building permits for retail shells with a value of $2.3 million.
Southern Arizona Urgent Care will lease space in the new center and Chipotle is building a $300,000 shop there. Developers also hope to bring a hotel to the site in the future.
At full buildout — by 2020 — the center could have up to 600,000 square feet of retail space, developers say.Anchor tenants will be on the west side of the center, facing I-19. Restaurants and retailers will be on the east and south sides, facing the interstate and Irvington Road.
Bourn is widening Irvington Road and adding two westbound lanes from I-19: one right-turn-only lane into the shopping center and one pass-through lane.
The Arizona Department of Transportation is also adding a third right-turn lane off of I-19 onto westbound Irvington Road.
