Town Center At The Preserve (Pine Avenue)

Town Center at the Preserve

Project Description

Lewis Retail Centers is building a commercial center called the Town Center, spanning over a 16-acre site situated at the intersection of Pine Avenue and Main Street in The Preserve. The commercial center boasts an impressive 146,800 square feet of space and includes a diverse mix of amenities, such as a grocery store, drive-thru buildings, restaurants, retail shops, and offices.

The buildings that face Main Street have been designed to enhance the pedestrian experience, featuring outdoor seating, decorative landscaping, and trees. Additionally, the Town Center comprises two mixed-use buildings, with commercial spaces located on the first floor and residential units above on the second and third floors, creating a vibrant atmosphere.

As part of the Town Center's development, Pine Avenue, between West Preserve Loop and Harvest/Homecoming, is undergoing significant improvements. The project includes widening the road to five lanes, adding two new traffic signals, constructing center medians, repaving Pine Avenue, and installing underground utilities. These improvements aim to relieve congestion and enhance traffic flow on Pine Avenue, providing a better driving experience for residents and visitors alike.
