What's going on at Winthrop? The construction in view now on Bloomingdale Avenue, between Watson and Providence roads, is for the upcoming Egg & I breakfast eatery and for another restaurant yet to be named.

But this is just a sampling of the commerce that will line the Bloomingdale Avenue border of the neotraditional community founded by John and Kay Sullivan.
The area is west of the Winthrop Events Centre — which features the Barn Theatre at Winthrop and the Winthrop Pole Barn — and east of Regions Bank.
"There's about 500,000 square feet left [to develop] on Bloomingdale Avenue," John Sullivan said. "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 of 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.
