Casto Lifestyle Properties and 1st Carolina Properties Announce Approval of Park West Village
Wednesday, February 6, 2008
Project will bring 100 acres of retail, residential, office, hotel and entertainment components
Morrisville, NC — Casto Lifestyle Properties and 1st Carolina Properties announced today that the Morrisville Board of Commissioners has approved their Morrisville, NC-based Park West Village project. The mixed-use lifestyle center will include 750,000 square feet of local and national retail and restaurant space, 50,000 square feet of office space, 140 hotel rooms and 350 traditional and “main street over retail” residential units. Construction is scheduled to begin Spring 2008, with an opening scheduled for Fall 2009. “We are pleased to have the support of the Morrisville community, its leaders and officials on this project,” said Brett Hutchens, president & CEO of CASTO Lifestyle Properties. “We are committed to establishing Park West Village as a destination and a jewel that the community will be proud to call its own.” Ideally situated at the northeast corner of Cary Parkway and Chapel Hill Road, Park West Village will combine the appeal of a traditional main street with a wide range of shopping and dining options. The center itself will be the only project of its kind in the local market and has already attracted the attention of many national brand retailers and premium restaurants. "Park West Village is poised to become the premier shopping and entertainment destination in Wake County,” said Connell Radcliff, president of 1st Carolina Properties. “We look forward to starting construction and bringing this project from concept to reality.” ABOUT CASTO LIFESTYLE PROPERTIES Casto Lifestyle Properties, an affiliate company of CASTO, is based in Sarasota, Florida and focuses on the development of mixed-use lifestyle centers.
