INDIAN ROCKS SHOPPING CENTER REDEVELOPMENT
RMC Property Group completed the redevelopment of Indian Rocks Shopping Center in late 2014. The redevelopment project transformed the fully-leased shopping center with a brand new 45,600 square foot Publix store, a new facade for the entire shopping center, and enhanced landscaping and signage features. Additionally, 2,600 square feet of leasable inline space was created as part of the redevelopment, creating the first new leasing opportunity at the shopping center in years. Harnessing its expertise as a premier commercial developer, RMC was able to complete the construction in phases so that the co-anchors at the center, Bealls Outlet and Dollar Tree, and other tenants could remain open during the process. Property is currently under contract.
