Four local retailers, 7-Eleven, Paws Dog Barkery, The Day Spa and Amazeballz are opening on the ground floor of the new Junction 15, a luxury-living community located in the historic downtown area of Plano. 7-Eleven and Paws Dog Barkery are now open; The Day Spa and Amazeballz are expected to open in early 2015. A fifth retailer will be joining Junction 15, and will be announced early in 2015.
Southern Land Company, the developer of Junction 15, expects these businesses to support its vision of creating a pedestrian-friendly, urban lifestyle with the opening of the six-story urban mid-rise development. Paul Neuroth, senior vice president of retail leasing at Southern Land Company, represented Southern Land on the Junction 15 development. Other Dallas-area properties developed by Southern Land Company include The Lofts at Watters Creek in Allen, Art House in Keller and Tucker Hill in McKinney.
“We are excited to add several local, community-oriented retailers to Junction 15,” said Brian Sewell, president of Southern Land Company, in a press release. “Each of these tenants provides goods and services needed not only for our residents, but also the other residents, employees and visitors to the downtown Plano community.”
Junction 15 will be anchored with an urban, 3,000-square-foot 7-Eleven convenience store.
Paws Dog Barkery is a family-owned, full-lined dog boutique that sells food, toys, chews and many other items for pets. The “barkery” will occupy approximately 1,374 square feet, providing a wide array of dog products for the downtown Plano community
A nail, massage and skin care salon, The Day Spa, will fill a 1,456-square-foot space in Junction 15. The 10-year-old company has locations all across the Metroplex.
Amazeballz is a unique cake ball bakery offering bite-size treats in more than 30 crafted varieties. Owner and operator Jaime Wiggins bakes, rolls and hand dips classic chocolate and vanilla cake balls, in addition to some exotic and seasonal flavor combinations like Pina Colada and Chocolate Maple Bacon. This will be the first store-front location for Wiggins, who was a home baker for a year before setting up shop in a commercial kitchen.
These new retail shops are located on the first floor of Junction 15 apartments, 930 E. 15th St. Residents have access to a number of on-site, resort-style amenities, and are steps away from downtown Plano’s historic district.
“This community is the perfect complement to the recent investments we have made into downtown Plano,” said Frank Turner, Plano deputy city manager. “The ground floor shops add to the great, walkable, retail atmosphere of the area, which we have worked hard to preserve.”
The official grand opening will be held on Jan. 27, when Southern Land’s senior leadership and other city officials will gather to celebrate the opening of the luxury-living community that will add to the growing energy and excitement surrounding the growth of Plano’s historic downtown.
