Opus West Corp. has started work and secured tenant commitments at Mill Crossing, a new shopping center scheduled for opening in Chandler in late 2009.

J.C. Penney Co. (NYSE: JCP) will anchor the 170,000-square-foot center at the southwest corner of Gilbert and Germann roads. Other tenants will include:

• Shoe Carnival, a retailer that is leasing 10,180 feet for its selection of footwear and accessories.

• Sears, Roebuck and Co. (NASDAQ: SHLD) appliance store, which is leasing 5,000 square feet.

• Restaurants Ah-So Sushi, Teriyaki Experience, and Berry Good Yogurt.

• Commercia Bank, McDonalds and Native New Yorker, which are leasing stand-alone pads.

Opus West Construction Corp. is the general contractor. Butler Design Group and Opus Architects & Engineers are the architects.

The shopping center location in Chandler, across the street from Gilbert and less than one mile north of the Santan Freeway offers substantial buying power from nearly 500,000 residents, Opus West officials say.

For more information about leasing, contact leasing brokers Chuck Gibson and Robbie Petty of Staubach Retail at 602-682-6000.

Mill Crossing is adjacent to 1.3 million square feet of retail space anchored by SuperTarget, a Wal-Mart Supercenter, Home Depot, Harkins Theatres and Barnes & Noble bookstore.

West of Mill Crossing is Chandler Municipal Airport. In this area, Opus West has completed the 180,000-square-foot Chandler Airport Center, a two-phase office development. The first phase is almost fully leased to CDW and Ottawa University.

Opus West also recently obtained zoning for Town Center at Longbow, a 50-acre retail power center at Loop 202 and Recker Road in north Mesa. The leasing brokers are Zach Pace, Greg Laing and Cameron Warren at Phoenix Commercial Advisors, 602-957-9800.
