Trinity in the News: Big things in store in Trinity

The walls are now going up for what will be a Michaels store, one of the anchor tenants in The Village at Mitchell Ranch.
TRINITY — As long as they don’t mind a little noise and a little dust, those who pass by the crossing of State Road 54 and Little Road are in store for seven or eight months of watching the fast-paced evolution of a new shopping center.

The first phase of the ambitious and long-awaited project at the southwestern corner of that intersection, now known as The Village at Mitchell Ranch, has entered full-steam-ahead mode, with completion of most shops and restaurants slated for late July or early August. The 22-acre commercial portion of project is now not only seeing constant construction, but its tenant list is nearly full.

It is highlighted by commitments from anchor stores Michaels, HomeGoods and Sprouts Farmers Market ¬— the first unit of the Phoenix-based chain of organic food supermarkets to arrive in Pasco County.

Meanwhile, the smaller stores have quickly followed with commitments. Of the 165,000 square feet available, only 5,700 square feet of in-line storefront — connected to other stores — remains open and only two parcels on the exterior remain up for grabs. They are 0.79 acres along State Road 54 and 0.83 acres on Little Road, next to what is reserved for a future PDQ restaurant.

The sudden progress come on the heels of stagnation dating back to the concept’s unveiling in 2015.

“We love it,” Ryan Jonson, the manager of Steak ’n Shake on Little Road, across from the development, said. “We see this as a huge opportunity for more sales and everyone has been waiting and hoping to see something happen. Based on what I’ve heard, it has been worth waiting for.”

Here’s the rundown of what businesses are on board:

Retail and services

ULTA Beauty, Five Below, Sketchers, Hair Cuttery, Aspen Dental, Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa, Organic Nail Bar, Spectrum, Cyclebar and Mattress One.

Dining

First Watch, Chipotle, Menchie’s, Jersey Mike’s Subs, PDQ, Blaze Pizza, Louis Pappas and Panda Express.

The walls are already going up where Michaels will sit, on the south end of the plot.

Landing the three large anchor stores was key to the quick turnaround.

“Typically, the smaller ones will follow and flank them and that’s exactly what happened here,” said Jenn Buonanotte, spokeswoman for The Shopping Center Group, the Tampa-based leasing advisor assisting Blackwater Real Estate, the developer of The Village at Mitchell Ranch. “We think there’s the perfect mix here of service providers, national names you’ll recognize, some local favorites, and some soft goods.”

She also credits the area’s continuing population explosion.

“That’s been the catalyst, going back to 2015,” she said. “It just took some time for it to all fall into place.”

Recent traffic studies show that nearly 119,000 consumers with an average household income of nearly $62,000 reside within five miles of The Village at Mitchell Ranch, with an average of nearly 150,000 vehicles traveling daily along State Route 54 and Little Road.

“Everyone has been very familiar with the viability of that market,” Buonanotte said of the area.

Blackwater also developed the Wal-Mart Supercenter in the northwestern corner of Little Road and S.R. 54 and Mitchell Ranch Plaza, in the southeastern corner.

Trinity in the News: Tired of fast food? Maybe there’ll be an Armature Works-like hall in Trinity

TRINITY — New Jersey-based M&M Realty Partners has a contract to develop the remaining 300 acres of the Mitchell 54 West project at State Road 54 and Little Road.

Land owner Dewey Mitchell shared the information July 11 with a North Tampa Bay Chamber luncheon crowd of 58 people at the Fox Hollow Golf Club in Trinity. Mitchell also offered an enticing tidbit about what might be in the works: A food hall and market place similar to Armature Works in Tampa.

Armature Works is a mixed-use project in Tampa Heights in a historic building that served as the storage facility for Tampa Electric’s street cars. It includes shared work space and meeting rooms and its centerpiece is the 22,000-square-foot Heights Public Market where communal seating is surrounded by 15 food locations.

M&M did not respond to an e-mail seeking comment. The company developed the Market Place at Citrus Park, a 200,000-square-foot project that includes Costco, Aldi, and Ford’s Garage on West Linebaugh Avenue in Tampa.

The company’s web site also hints at more projects coming to the state by noting the ongoing construction of a 50,000-square-foot Boynton Beach Market Place, “one of M&M’s newest projects in Florida, but because of the partners’ aggressive outlook on this state, it will soon be one of many.’’

The 300 acres in Pasco County would be the second phase of the Mitchell project, planned as a 330-acre, mixed-use project of up to 800 homes and nearly 1 million square feet of commercial space. First announced four years ago, the project initially was planned to include an outdoor mall, movie theater, fitness center, offices and public gathering space within walking distance of the residential neighborhood. It’s a design concept referred to as a town center or lifestyle center.

The 30-acre first phase of the Mitchell project, known as the Village at Mitchell Ranch, is under construction.

VMR Development of Alabama acquired that parcel in May for $8.5 million. VMR is a newly formed company that includes the principals of Blackwater Resources of Birmingham, Ala. Blackwater previously developed the Mitchell Ranch shopping plaza on the southeast corner of the intersection.

Sprouts Farmers Market already announced it will be one of the anchors in the Village at Mitchell Ranch. Mitchell distributed maps to the audience that identified other tenants as HomeGoods, Mattress One, Michael’s, Ulta Beauty, PDQ, Chipotle Mexican Grill, Five Below and Skechers.

But the idea of M&M considering an Armature Works-like project for Trinity generated the most buzz.

“I loved hearing that,’’ said financial planner and former Pasco Commissioner Michael Cox, who introduced Mitchell to the audience.

“I think it’s fantastic,’’ said Hope Allen, president and CEO of the North Tampa Bay Chamber. “I think it’s absolutely a necessity. The 54 corridor is a great place for it.’’

She noted the collaborative work space could benefit entrepreneurs, while the food offerings “gives us added culinary options, outside of big box, chain restaurants.’’

Mitchell said the 300-acre second phase could break ground in October or November if the sales contract closes in the fall.
