Perry Crossing Celebrates Completion of Redevelopment
The Shops at Perry Crossing, formerly Metropolis Lifestyle Center, celebrated the completion of its $11.1 million redevelopment and rebranding with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the center’s Town Square on November 13. Improvements to the 600,000-square-foot outdoor shopping center include a redesigned central plaza, now called Town Square, with inviting open areas to accommodate events, such as a planned movie series on the lawn. Every member of the family can come to the shopping center now that the entire property is dog-friendly and pet stations are planned. The new Town Square also features a gazebo and fireplace to warm yourself on the crisp nights in the winter and a splash pad where kids can play in the hot summer. Children will also love to walk on the bridge over the new koi pond and throw food to the fish. In addition, more than 70 parking spots have been added and most of the parallel parking spots have been replaced with user-friendly head-in spots, making parking much easier and less distressing for some drivers. Additional signage, improved lighting and a peaceful water wall also enhance the shopping and dining experience.
