Construction has started on a new 14,700-square-foot commercial building at 1514 Brentwood Drive in Forest Acres.
The commercial space will be broken up into two floors, with 8,400 square feet of contiguous space on the first floor and 6,300 square feet on the second, plus a 2,022-square-foot covered terrace, according to a news release. The outdoor terrace would be suitable as an amenity for a restaurant, wine bar, office tenant or other user. Outdoor dining options are also available on the first floor.
“We are excited to bring this new project to the Forest Acres market,” said Frank Cason, president of Cason Development Group. “It’s a great opportunity to bring new upscale retail and boutique office space to the booming market.”
Construction should be completed in about nine months, according to the release.
Four of the 11 townhomes in the mixed-use project have been completed. The townhomes, known as Rigby Square, are being built by Wilson Co., a local infill residential developer, and are marketed by the Moore Company.
