FOLEY – Looking for some new places to shop in Foley? You may not have to wait past Spring/Summer of 2019, which is the speculated opening of the new Foley/Riviera Square shopping center additions.

On May 17, the Burton Property Group broke ground on Phases IV & V of the Foley/Riviera Square project, which will expand the shopping center that currently includes retailers such as PetSmart, Ross, and Academy. The expansion will be located on 22-acres of property, and once completed, the new phases will bring 122,000 additional square feet to the center. An estimated 250 plus jobs will be coming to Foley with the opening of the new retailers.

Among the new growth, Foley will be getting a Marshalls, Homegoods, Ulta, Five Below, Tuesday Morning, and for many, a long-awaited Publix.

“This project has been a Herculean effort, a relationship between public and private, state and local levels, and I want to thank everyone for their combined efforts,” said President and CEO of Burton Property Group Philip Burton. “I want to thank Publix for selecting Foley as a market, we are thrilled to have you guys and the other retailers that are coming, and we look forward to opening the doors in Spring/Summer of next year. We look forward to the continued relationship with Foley, it’s been an incredible ride to get to this point.”

Along with the retailers, also included in the overall site development will be enhancements of surrounding roads, entrances and exits.

“This is a chapel of public/private partnership that we like to see here in Foley,” said councilman Ralph Hellmich. “Giving our citizens the opportunity for jobs and the opportunity to not have to go other places to shop.”

Currently, small shop spaces are also available. You can contact BPGleasing@burtonprop.com or call 251-380-7241 for leasing information.
