Taylorsville - We have all seen the buildings off of Redwood Road torn down and new ones magically appearing, but what retail and restaurant additions will be made to Taylorsville City’s new shopping center? Within the next three months, Zaxby’s, Pizza Studio, Five Guys, Cubby’s, GNC, Beans n’ Brews and Mattress Firm are expected to open to the public at Legacy Plaza 5400. There will also be several new additions coming to the Crossroads of Taylorsville.
A great new Asian restaurant called Zao Asian Cuisine, which was started by the same man who founded Rumbi Island Grill, is projected to begin construction at the beginning of the year. Starting in January, an 8,000-square-foot Farrell’s Old Fashioned Ice Cream Parlor and restaurant will begin construction in the Crossroads of Taylorsville. Also, the relocation of Café Rio will be finished by the end of 2015.
“We are excited for the rebirth of the former retail center of the west side of Salt Lake County and the new life, vibrancy and excitement that is in the community to see new shopping and dining opportunities,” Wayne Harper, director of economic development for Taylorsville City, said.
Taylorsville community members can also expect construction to begin on the 14 screen Regal Cinema, remodeling of the Schmidt’s Pastry Cottage and multiple new tenants in the building that houses Kwal’s Paints.
“This new space will reenergize and revitalize Taylorsville. The new Regal Theater will be the nicest theater in the valley, bringing families from the entire valley to Taylorsville City,” Bill Stone, owner of Crossroads of Taylorsville said.
In the first quarter of 2016, announcements will be made for the future fashion tenants who will fill the spaces left by Bed Bath & Beyond, Famous Footwear and the former site of the Furniture Warehouse building. There are currently six more restaurants that are new to the market working on getting a space in this area.
“The new Crossroads of Taylorsville means the close of a chapter when retail by-passed the city and the return of vibrancy to an important critical retail location in the Taylorsville community,” Harper said.
Watching old buildings be torn down and new ones replace them has been exciting for many within Taylorsville City.
“Taylorsville is a very family oriented city. Anything that can keep families coming together is a good thing. The Crossroads of Taylorsville has turned into more of a family gathering place for fun and food. The more things families have to do the more they are going to want to be there. Our goal is to give them the entertainment and food they need to keep them coming back,” NormaLynn Cutler with Cutler Enterprises said.
