More retail is coming to East 10th Street.
A new center will break ground near 10th Street and Bahnson Avenue as part of a larger redevelopment of the George Boom Funeral Home property
The funeral home broke ground last year on a new funeral home on the north end of its land.
The new retail center will be next to Jacky’s Restaurant.
It is one of many projects Ryan Tysdal said he is pitching to prospective tenants this week at RECON, the world’s largest retail real estate convention, put on in Las Vegas by the International Council of Shopping Centers.
“We are currently mid-deal with a strong national tenant for the west endcap and have had several leasing conversations with prospective tenants for the east endcap,” said Tysdal of Van Buskirk Cos., which has the property listed for lease.
This stretch of 10th Street has seen significant activity in recent years, Tysdal said, pointing to the retail center built on the former Mint Casino site and openings from Caribou Coffee and Scooter’s Coffee.
The Dacotah Town Centre strip center is fully leased with the addition of Wacko’s Comedy Club and Tiger Rock Taekwondo training center.
“In general, this area is fully leased and completely full. This summer, the Flower Mill is moving out of their building at 10th and Bahnson, only because they literally outgrew their building due to their extremely successful business,” Tysdal said.
“The retail draw of Hy-Vee is huge. Retailers like to be by other retailers. Traffic counts are excellent; you have over 25,000 vehicles per day on this stretch of East 10th. Plus, you have very close proximity to the Interstate 229 interchange.”
