Mall under construction on Chambers Avenue

Daily Staff Report

EAGLE ” Construction began recently on the Post Office Crossing shopping center in the Chambers Business District, directly across Chambers Avenue from the Eagle Post Office.

The 8,400-square-foot shopping mall is being developed by RED Real Estate Developments and Management, a local company owned by Eagle residents Amy and Chris Pates. Amy Pates says the mini-mall will lease spaces to as many as seven tenants.

She said she is planning for a mix of tenants that will offer a variety of shopping conveniences for the community.

“We have been speaking to a number of interested restaurants,” she said. “Being adjacent to two hotels, the site lends itself to a breakfast place and/or Internet cafe,

There is also a demand for a gourmet deli offering healthier versions of “fast food,” and the Pates have fielded a number of requests for a hardware store, she said.

Participate in The Longevity Project

The Longevity Project is an annual campaign to help educate readers about what it takes to live a long, fulfilling life in our valley. This year Kevin shares his story of hope and celebration of life with his presentation Cracked, Not Broken as we explore the critical and relevant topic of mental health.

A hair salon, fitness studio and clothing store also are potential tenants, she said.

“With population growth at a rate of 16 percent this year and expectations for growth to double over the next six years, Eagle is the place to be,” says Pates.

Construction is also underway on a Taco Bell and Long John Silver restaurant a bit further east on Chambers Avenue. Post Office Crossing spaces should be available for tenants by early November, Pates says.

“We should have shops open for holiday season,” says Pates.
