Woodward Corners by Beaumont is almost ready with some major tenants preparing to open, others working hard and unknown tenants sure to come as they see the beautiful development strategically located in Royal Oak at the southwest corner of 13 Mile and Woodward. The above image is a rendering of the stand alone grocery store, operated by Meijers, that depicts what it will look like when completed. We are told by Meijers that this facility will open next spring.
I purposely avoided using the phrase “shopping center” because the phrase has connotations of shopping centers of bygone years. This will be a destination point. You will want to go there not only to shop, but to simply relax, meet friends and enjoy the ambiance. As you visit it there is a good chance that I will be there, certainly to buy groceries from the Meijer’s food market, but also to buy a cup of coffee at New Order Coffee or to have lunch at Wahlburgers, Panera Bread and other eateries. Below is a slide presentation of some superior landscaping. Scroll through the slides and see for yourself. The slides includes images of some of the construction being completed. There are plans to include a hotel, however no one returned my calls and emails, therefore I am not able to provide any information in regards to the status of a hotel.
Based on the fact that Wahlburgers has placed outside seating on their location within the center, as seen in one of the photos below, it leads me to believe they will be opening soon. You can enlarge the presentation below if you wish to get a better view.
I just received a tip that Wahlburgers is striving to open the weekend of August 2nd.
