The Village will be home to new shops and offices by the beginning of the year.
Beth Patterson, senior vice president and director of retail services for Collier’s International, said the retail space in the South Village project near Zionsville Road and 106th Street should be done by January with businesses opening in the spring. The project was approved in November 2012.
The project, which is being developed by Bob Harris, includes several Village features, such as on-street parking, buildings near the road with parking behind and using similar light fixtures as the Village.
Patterson said of the five spots that were available, four leases have been signed. Storen Financial, Confectioneiress, Village Cleaners and Sub Sixteen Deli will all be opening a location in the development.
Victor Gosnell, Confectioneiress co-owner, said they will be opening a new location called Bites by Confectioneiress.
“It will be a coffee and dessert bar where we’ll have mini desserts and a full coffee bar,” he said. “All the desserts we do, we don’t have on a daily basis at our bakery. We wanted to have a different spot to offer all those different things we do make.”
