Final plans for the Fry’s SaddleBrooke Marketplace are moving forward, according to the Pederson Group, developers of the site.
For many years, the land development company has hoped to secure a food retailer as the anchor store in the strip center.
“We should have a clear direction on the timing of this project by late December,” according to Rob Bassett, chief operating officer at Pederson in Phoenix. We are wow requesting new bids for the project from construction companies.
“We are currently in the process of repricing the project,” Bassett said. “Unfortunately, we find ourselves in a market where price escalations are very unpredictable” for the 120,000-acre site. “Once we receive final pricing, we plan to commence construction the first quarter of 2022.”
Pederson estimates that the current population in the proposed development market area is approximately 40,000 and will grow to 45,500 in 2026. According to the developer, the average household income is now $80,765, “in an area with limited retail competition.” The site plan calls for the grocer, a bank, gas station, restaurants and retail services.
