"There's about 500,000 square feet left [to develop] on Bloomingdale Avenue," John Sullivan said in an earlier Patch interview. "People don't realize how much is going to be there. A lot of it is going to be housing."
In comparison, the existing Winthrop Town Centre comprises about 150,000 square feet, Sullivan said. Anchored by a brick-facade Publix, the center's tenants include the Green Iguana, Acropolis Greek Taverna, Five Guys Burgers & Fries, Moe's Southwestern Grill and Cappy's Pizza restaurants. Also included in the mix are Starbucks, Winthrop Liquors, Soho Optics, Menchie's Frozen Yogurt, the Brandon Lakes Animal Hospital and the Aveda Spa & Salon.
Upcoming housing along Bloomingdale Avenue, Sullivan said, will include live-work units.
