The center, which is 74% pre-leased, will include a 45,600-square-foot Publix grocery store and approximately 16,000 square feet of shop space, with two outlots available for future development.

Construction on the center is expected to begin by early November, with the Publix store targeted to open in the fall of 2015.

“The Shoppes at Rainbow Landing is our first retail development in Alabama, and represents execution on our strategic plan to grow our portfolio by developing and acquiring shopping centers in the southeastern United States,” said Scott Carr, chief investment officer for Inland Real Estate Corporation. “In line with that objective, we look forward to adding market-leading Publix to our tenant roster of high quality national retailers. In addition, our strategy of partnering with established developers provides the opportunity to add this brand new shopping center to our portfolio at better than market pricing.”

The Shoppes at Rainbow Landing site is located approximately one hour northeast of Birmingham, Alabama. The Publix-anchored center is expected to draw from an immediate trade area that includes a population base of 25,169 with average household incomes of $61,547 within a 10-minute drive time from the property. The center will benefit from its prime location at the intersection of Rainbow Drive (U.S. Highway 411) and Alabama Highway 77, which provide excellent regional accessibility to the property.
