Since it's located about 1.5 miles from my house, I have been watching Stone Hill Town Center take shape for some time now. My wife and I relish the thought of having even closer shopping options, especially since we are now expecting our fourth child and traveling time seems even more at a premium.
Currently, the only stores open are the Home Depot, Mattress Firm, and Verizon Wireless. Very soon, that will change, as Best Buy is slated for its grand opening on February 27th, with Bealls Department Store and the SuperTarget store both opening in March.
There are a handful of restaurants that are planned for the perimeter of the project, including Chick Fil-A, Jamba Juice, Panda Express (Chinese), and Schlotzsky's. Chili's was planning to place a location at Stone Hill, but this has been put on hold for now.
The development encompasses 96 acres on the southwest corner of 45 and 130 (both toll roads), and will feature over 500,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space. Other businesses which have already claimed space at Stone Hill Town Center include:
- Office Depot
- 24-Hour Fitness
- Ross Dress for Less
- Kay Jeweler's
- Dick's Sporting Goods
- Rack Room Shoes
- Sport Clips
- Massage Envy
- Smoothie Factory
- Washington Mutual (and at least two other banks)
Additionally, they are planning for office space on the property in the not-too-distant future. I look forward to the convenience that this will bring, along with the potential for lower property taxes in the area as more sales tax begins to roll into the city coffers.
