12th Publix Store Breaks Ground in Metro Richmond

Richmond, VA – November 8, 2017 - A groundbreaking ceremony marked the beginning of construction for a 12th Publix store to open in the metro Richmond area. Publix staff and community members gathered to celebrate the future 50,759 square foot building to be located at the Brandy Creek Commons Retail center in Mechanicsville.

Known for their cleanliness, fresh-store prepared food, and staff helpfulness, Publix is a Florida-based grocery store chain that has been strategically evolving store concepts north from their roots of Florida and Georgia in 2017. Four new stores have opened in metro Richmond within the last month, including locations at Short Pump Crossing Shopping Center in Henrico, Virginia Center Marketplace in Glen Allen, Harbour Pointe Shopping Center in Midlothian, and Colonial Square Shopping Center in Colonial Heights.

Timmons Group’s private land development team was contracted directly with The Morgan Companies to provide a full array of land development services including site engineering, landscaping and irrigation; pedestrian accessibility plan; and site surveying.  The project architecture was performed by Hiscutt & Associates, Inc., and HGR Construction, Inc. will be the general contractor for the project.

The Brandy Creek Commons retail center will also include the following tenants upon construction completion: Virginia ABC store, Petvalu, Hair Cuttery, MOD Pizza, and Five Guys.
