MILL STREET CROSSING IN THE NEWS
New Shopping Center Mill Street Crossing To Open Summer 2019
The north side of San Marcos will soon get a new shopping center at 641 Mill Street, adjacent to the Old Mill Business Park and next to several student housing and residential developments. Ground was broken on the shopping center, called Mill Street Crossing, in January. The first phase of the project will include a 12,500-square-foot building, and a new grocery and convenience store called Mill Street Market.
New Retail Center Coming To North Side
It’s easy to look at the growth San Marcos has experienced and say it’s all over town. On closer inspection, however, there’s a segment of the city that hasn’t seen the retail development that’s occurred elsewhere — but that’s about to change. On track to open later this year is The Shops at Mill Street Crossing, a project of local resident and businessman Henry Oles that, he says, will fill a long-standing need.
New Shopping Center To Open On Mill Street
The development of a new shopping center located near the corner of Mill Street and Uhland Road is expected to open in the summer or fall of 2019.
The shopping center will consist of a variety of retail, food and other shops anchored by a large convenience grocery store with fuel and a restaurant. The shopping center is part of a five-and-a-half-acre development situated on the Old Mill 12-acre site.
Henry Oles, the owner of the land, said there are already some businesses expected to open in the shopping center and that residents are positive about the development.
“Our primary business is going to be called San Marcos Market, and that’s going to be a super-sized convenient store,” Oles said. “It’ll have fuel and instead of having just the junk food, it’ll have groceries, meat and produce.”
Oles said he has not heard one negative comment about having the development. Oles also said there will be a multitude of businesses in the shopping center.
