Rivers Edge signKite Realty's redeveloped Rivers Edge shopping center at 82nd Street at Dean Road is fully occupied, leaving other developers to capitalize on stronger retail demand in the area. Some big-name stores and a new-to-market restaurant have lined up to take space in retail strips across the street from Nordstrom Rack, Container Store, BuyBuy Baby and Harry & Izzy's.

A center under construction and developed by locally based Veritas Realty has commitments from: Pancheros Mexican Grill, an Iowa-based concept similar to Chipotle and Qdoba that will be opening its first Indiana store; DiBella's Old Fashioned Submarines, a New York chain that's looking for six local restaurants starting with Traders Point and The Avenue near IUPUI; Mattress Firm and Verizon Wireless.

A new retail building just to the west proposed by locally based Thomas English Retail Real Estate calls for a Select Comfort mattress store. No word yet on the second tenant for the space or a new user and/or redevelopment of the vacant former Lifestyle Family Fitness behind the proposed Thomas English project.

  • Rivers Edge
    What is going inbetween the container store and BGI?
  • Rivers Edge
    Arhaus is taking that location.
  • Arhaus
    Is this a new location for Arhaus or are they leaving the Carmel location at 116th and Keystone?
  • Arhaus
    The Rivers Edge Arhaus is replacing the one at Merchants Square.
      Any news on new tennants at the Fashion Mall after the renovation / addition is finished?
    • Fort Wayne had a Pancheros
      But it closed, so therefore your comment is wrong, but it would be the only one in full operation in Indiana.
