Two new additions to the second phase of Mayfaire Community Center could be opening their doors as early as September with construction of the new 50,000-square-foot Dick’s Sporting Goods and 24,000-square-foot Marshalls nearly complete.
In November 2013, Mayfaire Town Center and Mayfaire Community Center developers BrodyCo, Inc. and Zimmer Development Company announced Dick’s Sporting Goods and Marshalls would relocate their Wilmington stores to new locations in Phase II of Mayfaire Community Center.
Mayfaire director of marketing Paige Somervell said the two stores are expected to open in September with a 12,000-square-foot PetSmart to be built next to Dick’s and open mid-2015.
Along with those three larger tenants, Mayfaire Community Center’s Phase II will also have space for an additional seven smaller stores with the largest parcel just more than 3,000 square feet.
Another new addition to Mayfaire Town Center will be Wilmington’s second Chipotle Mexican Grill. Chipotle will take over the freestanding restaurant location that previously housed Mama Fu’s near the development’s Military Cutoff Road entrance.
The space has remained vacant since Mama Fu’s lease expired around June 2012 and a Chipotle customer service consultant said the new Chipotle is expected to open its doors in early December 2014.
Across Military Cutoff Road, construction has also begun on the new Goodwill Community Foundation Donation Center and Store on Sir Tyler Drive.
The store will be 11,988 square feet and resemble the location recently constructed in the Waterford of the Carolinas community of Leland.
Architect Les Murray of Design Development Architects in Raleigh said weather has delayed construction on the project, but that the steel frame of the building would be erected sometime in the next month. With that timeline in mind, Murray said the new Goodwill should be open in November if there are no other significant weather events like Hurricane Arthur to slow progress.
