Earth Fare, World Market and Youfit are three new concepts coming to the Gainesville area. The three anchors will be a new 60,000 square foot addition to University Towne Center. Argate Properties of Miami Beach is awaiting approval from the city of Gainesville for a proposed site plan for the new building. Steven Siegel, president of Argate Properties, expects to start construction August 2014 and have the first space open February or March of 2015. While the tenants were signed by Argate, Front Street Commercial Real Estate Group is representing the land seller and is marketing the rest of University Towne Center. There are currently four vacant spaces in the center ranging from 1,320 to 3,200 square feet. Our own Nick Banks is quoted saying University Towne Center “will be a true anchored center with destination retailers and a grocery store.” He believes it is a good sign for our market when new retailers move into the area. Many Gainesville residents are excited for the new stores to open!
Earth Fare is based in Fletcher, N.C. with more than 31 locations across nine states. The store is popular for its ban of products with high fructose corn syrup, trans fat, artificial colors and sweeteners, and synthetic growth hormones.
World Market is owned by Bed, Bath & Beyond. The store is based in Oakland, California and offers imported home décor, furnishings, housewares items, gifts, jewelry, and international wines and food.
Youfit is based in St. Petersburg and offers $10-per-month memberships. The fitness center has more than 70 locations in nine states.
