New businesses could be in the Kings Crossing shopping center by the end of 2012.
The site’s developer, JBG Rosenfeld Retail, is currently adding 20,000 square feet of small-store space in front of Walmart on pad sites that front Route 1. The developer has announced on its website that among the initial tenants will be Patient First Urgent Care, Panda Express, Sarku Japan, Jimmy John’s and Mazzio’s.
According to the Southeast Fairfax Development Corp., a nail salon will also move into one of the sites. David Ben, spokesman for the SFDC, said based on the timelines the SFDC has heard, the pad sites will be available for the tenants this summer, and the businesses should be in operation by late 2012 or early 2013.
Kings Crossing is anchored by the Walmart, which covers 80,000 square feet. A 15,000-square-foot Chuck E. Cheese’s is located next door.
According to the developer, nearly 380,000 people live within a 5-mile radius of the site, and an estimated 53,000 vehicles travel daily on Route 1.
