CRESTVIEW — Here's an update on construction along Ferdon Boulevard.
Crestview Crossing is the site of three new buildings for retail and restaurant use at 2150 S. Ferdon Blvd., adjacent to Publix.
Approved by City Council in February 2016, the project was conducted in two phases—the first a 4,600 and a 9,460-square-foot building for mixed commercial use. The second, a 6,000-square-foot structure for retail usage.
The 3.8-acre development will wrap around the existing Coastal Bank and Trust and connect a drive to the Publix shopping center.
Four businesses have already signed leases for phase one locations in the plaza—McAlister’s Deli, Marco’s Pizza, Sport Clips and Fusion Bistro. Sport Clips has begun hiring for its unit.
Marco’s Pizza and Fusion Bistro both operate multiple locations in south Okaloosa County. Sport Clips and McAlister’s have locations throughout northwest Florida. These will be the first Crestview locations for all four companies.
Buildings in phase one are nearing completion after the groundbreaking for construction began in December.
Windows and doors are already being installed on the smaller of the two buildings in the suite that will become Sport Clips. The larger of the buildings, which will feature the deli and pizzeria, is awaiting exterior wall completion.
The third building, nearest the Publix, has not progressed as far but this is to be expected since it is part of the second phase of development.
Parking lots and roadways that will be built as part of the project have yet to be constructed.
No completion dates have been established for the projects, according to Growth Management Director Teresa Gaillard. Similarly, only a “coming soon” announcement has been made on the One Commercial Property web page—the owner of the properties.
Editor's Note: The article has been updated to reflect that this will be the first Crestview location for Sport Clips.
