Officials will cut the ribbon Friday on the $11 million redevelopment of a Plainfield shopping center. The Shops at Perry Crossing will boast new features including technology charging stations and additional parking.
The property was formerly known as Metropolis Lifestyle Center. Tennessee-based Poag Shopping Centers worked with Woolpert Inc. in Ohio on the project. The companies looked to turn the central plaza area with more of a "town square" feeling. Major tenants include Dick’s Sporting Goods, JCPenney, Barnes & Noble, Carmike Cinemas and Old Navy.
Developers say the center will also feature a gazebo with a fireplace, a koi pond and a children’s play area. There will also be new lighting and signage. The ribbon-cutting is scheduled for Friday, November 13 at 11:00 a.m.
