Manager: New tenants, live music coming to Pinebrook Shopping Center

Posted: Updated:
MOBILE, AL (WALA) - Whole Foods grocery store is scheduled to open late August early September 2015 in the Pinebrook Shopping Center located off Airport Boulevard and McGregor Avenue.

The manager of Pinebrook investment company Bill Youngblood says Whole Foods has made deals with local farmers and suppliers in the area.

“There will be so many little restaurants in there, food sources, they're very specific about what's organic. Everything in there is the best you can get. They've got separate little areas for all these food sources, victims and supplements,” Youngblood said.

Youngblood says Whole Foods will pump about $6 million dollars into the store. He added so far, the Pinebrook has spent about $6.5 million dollars on refurbishments.

Mobile is one of 10 new locations nationwide that Whole Foods Market plans to open in 2014 and beyond. This store alone is slated to create between 40 and 60 jobs. 

Youngblood says Rock-N-Roll Sushi should open up sometime this week after approval by the health department. C-Spire is already open in the shopping center and there are more tenants coming.

“We're replacing a lot of the older tenants who were here. Either concepts have changed or they're not meeting the higher end market we're positioning the center,” Youngblood said. He won't reveal who will go on the spot where Blockbuster was formally located but says negotiations are underway.

Also underway is a new traffic light being installed neat the west end of the shopping center.

Access roads to the shopping center have been taken over by new parking spaces and soon, drivers won't be able to make a left turn out of the main entrance of the center.

Youngblood says the changes in tenants and traffic are promoting a change in atmosphere.

‘We will also probably have some live entertainment at night that will be very quiet but peaceful entertainment like classical guitars and even some opera singers so there will be a lot changes there,” Young Blood explained.

Youngblood says there's talk of replacing the traffic light with a traffic circle at the intersection of Dauphin Street and McGregor Avenue. A public hearing is schedule for Tuesday, April 21, 5:30 p.m. at Holy Cross Lutheran Church off Airport Boulevard, adjacent to the IHop.
