Verrado residents will soon have more convenience close to home.
On July 10, DMB Verrado closed the sale of approximately 1.6 acres to bring a convenience store with self-service fuel and drive-through car wash facility to the northwest corner of Market Street and Verrado Way.
“We know Verrado residents are eagerly awaiting fuel service and also a convenience store and car wash in the community,” said Mike Burke, senior vice president of commercial for DMB.
Development improvements to this commercial area in Verrado’s Marketside District are underway by DMB. The land buyer, an affiliate of CST Brands, Inc., anticipates opening in early 2016.
CST is one of the largest independent retail and wholesale distributors of motor fuel and convenience merchandise, freshly prepared food and other services in North America. Its over 1,000 retail locations in the U.S. operate primarily under the Corner Store banner.
“We are very excited to develop this store in Buckeye,” said CST CEO Kim Lubel. “We look forward to offering this community our clean, friendly Verrado’s Marketside District is a 60-acre mixed use district adjacent to the I-10 freeway at the gateway to the community that includes Banner Health Center and Verrado Coffee Company.
Continued Marketside District development could include restaurants, shopping, medical, hotels and residential units that will be developed over the coming years. The district’s architectural character will complement the hometown feel of Verrado, while being more accessible to a larger market.
“Our plan is to grow Marketside at Verrado into a regional draw for shopping, dining and ultimately bringing new residential and employment opportunities to the community,” said Mike Burke.
