The Shops at Park Lane has broken ground for three new buildings that will add more than 160,000 square feet of retail, restaurant and office space to the 33.5-acre multi-use shopping center.

Located at the northern end of the project near Park and North Central Expressway, the expansion will add a five-story, 150,000 square-foot building containing 120,000 square feet of office space with 30,000 square feet of ground floor retail.

In between the new five-story building and the building that currently houses Grimaldi’s and Gordon Biersch, developers are hoping to transform the green space into an outdoor plaza that will serve as a gathering place for community events. The plaza will be flanked two new buildings that will house ground-level restaurants boasting large patios.

“The expansion brings an outward identity to the project as well as a heartbeat in the form of the plaza,” says Sandy Spurgin, Vice President of Northwood Retail, via press release.

We originally reported that the project would start last July and be complete by fall of 2014. Now, publicist Claire Butterworth says the project is slated to for completion by spring 2015.
