About Recent Greendale Developments
In recent years, it has been a top priority for the Greendale Village Board to explore various options for energizing a revitalization of the 76th Street commercial area, as we’ve seen most recently through numerous new developments in the Village:
- In November 2010, the Village of Greendale announced a partnership with the owner of Southridge Mall, Simon Property Group (SPG) to undertake a multi-million dollar redevelopment of Southridge Mall including a renovation and upgrade of the mall’s interior. The mall renovations will include new interior and exterior features and amenities like flooring, lighting, redesigned mall entrances, signage and a fully renovated and updated Food Court. Renovation plans also include the addition of Macy’s as a new anchor. Macy’s will join Southridge Mall as the second in the market.
- In March 2011, the General Capital Group closed on the purchase of three acres of land and secured financing for a 90-unit independent living senior housing complex along the S. 76th St. Corridor, adjacent to Southridge Mall. The development, known as Berkshire-Greendale, is currently under construction. The project will transform the area south of the mall and adjust one of the south entrances to create a four-way intersection at Northway. It will include redevelopment of the former Blood Center property and construction of 90 units of senior housing. General Capital Group is developing the project, which is already leased at capacity and expected to reach completion in early 2012.
- In June 2011, after a two-month formal review process, the Village of Greendale Plan Commission approved a proposal for a Walmart to be developed at 5301 South 76th Street on the former site of the United States Bowling Congress Building. The development will include a Walmart market and pharmacy and two out lots for development by future tenants. The Walmart market will mark the return of a grocery store to the Village of Greendale.
