All permit work has been completed for the impending expansion of Monte Vista Crossings, Turlock Assistant to the City Manager for Housing and Economic Development Maryn Pitt confirmed Tuesday.
The work should clear the way for the expansion’s two anchor tenants, Dick’s Sporting Goods and Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Store, to open by Christmas, Pitt said.
The 108,907 square-foot expansion of Monte Vista Crossings broke ground in early March, just after an anticipated Feb. 15 groundbreaking. The developer, Hall Equities Group, had hoped to provide construction pads for their anchor tenants by the end of April, but the timeline was slightly pushed back.
Phase II of Monte Vista Crossings is located just south of Kohl's and The Olive Garden, in the square of land bordered by Highway 99, Countryside Drive, and Tuolumne Road.
In addition to the two anchors, the development has been confirmed to include the following: a Tilly’s surf and skate apparel store; a Kirkland’s home décor store; a Maurice’s women’s clothing shop; a Justice and Brothers tween apparel location; and, a factory-owned Sprint cellphone shop. The development will also include six currently unidentified stores and a restaurant.
