L.L. Bean Inc. is opening a new store in Columbus, and the retailer will give the market a months-long sneak peek in the run-up to the real thing. The Freeport, Maine-based outdoor retailer Wednesday said it will open a 20,600- square-foot store at Easton town Center by October or November in a standalone building currently home to the Container Store. That store is moving to a new space this year in the nearby Easton Gateway shopping center.
Steiner & Associates, an old hand in the mixed-use construction game, is lead developerin a live-work-play enterprise in Cincinnati called Liberty Center, to be co-developed by Bucksbaum Retail Properties. This will feature about 250 upscale vertical residences in the phased 1.1 million-square-foot urban development rising along Interstate 75 and slated to make its debut this year.
Easton Gateway will add 13 tenants to its lineup in the coming months, with some moving over from nearby Easton Town Center. With the additions, Easton Gateway is moving rapidly toward filling its 54-acre site.“We expect by the end of the year we will fill all the space,” said Beau Arnason, executive vice president at Easton operator Steiner + Associates. “There are probably a handful (of spaces) in the 12,000- to 15,000-square-foot size — medium box size — that are still available, but not a lot."
Retail planner and consultant Bob Gibbs will be joined by Terry Shook, an expert in retail design and main street development, and Seaside town center developer, Daryl Davis, to present this one-of-a-kind retail workshop.
