Harbour View retail progresses

New shopping and dining options on Harbour View Boulevard are on their way to opening next year.

Construction crews are expected to finish two new retail centers on Harbour View Boulevard this December, according to Atherton Construction and Development Superintendent Mike Viloria.

The larger building of approximately 13,000 square feet is expected to be finished for tenants to begin moving in on Dec. 1, while the 7,000-square foot building will be turned over on Dec. 15, Viloria said.

Bad weather caused more than three weeks of delay during construction, including more than 30 days of rain since ground broke on April 24, Viloria said.

“We had numerous rain days where we were able to work inside,” he said. “You got to do what you got to do.”

Mexican cuisine chain Tijuana Flats, Mediterranean café chain Zoë’s Kitchen and Metro Diner will be among the tenants, plus Coastal Vision optometry.

The new Zoë’s Kitchen restaurant will open mid-spring, Public Relations Coordinator Madeline Stone stated in an email. She said the store will bring approximately 30 new jobs in the community.

The Metro Diner is scheduled to open early March, Director of Marketing Crafton Bryant IV stated in an email.
