Development moving forward at the Acadian Perkins Shopping Center by Christopher Aronstein

Commercial Properties Realty Trust announced this morning that, along with previously announced anchor tenant Trader Joe’s, Kean’s Fine Dry Cleaning, stationery company The Keeping Room, and Nadeau furniture store are some of the tenants to be included at the Acadian Village shopping center under development at the corner of Perkins Road and South Acadian Thruway. Also, Smarter Eyewear, Pei Wei restaurant, Baby Bump Maternity, Air Blow Dry Bar and La Divina Italian Cafe will also join the 70,000-square-foot center, Commercial Properties says. And as previously reported byDaily Report, Commercial Properties confirms Petco will also be among the retail center’s tenants. “The mix of businesses in Acadian Village will serve the well-established surrounding neighborhoods and draw more shoppers to the thriving Perkins Road Overpass Area,” says Carolyn Martin, president and CEO of Commercial Properties, in a prepared statement. The firm says its total investment in the development exceeds $18 million. Construction of the main shopping center is now under way, and the development is 85% leased. Acadian Village is currently home to Acme Oyster House, IberiaBank and Galatoire’s Bistro. You can check out some renderings of the shopping center here.
