The town of Schererville has approved the rezoning of 30 acres for commercial use, setting the stage for a proposed 350,000-square-foot lifestyle shopping center that would create about 2,800 jobs, reports the Times of Northwest Indiana.

The developers of the Lake County outdoor mall are Jacksonville-based Regency Centers Corp. and Billings, Mont.-based Boyer Properties LLC.

An economic impact study indicates the $140 million project would create 1,112 construction jobs, 497 indirect jobs and 1,254 retail positions. A start date for construction has not been set.
