“It’s [the Kmart space] going to be divided into five tenant spaces, all of which will be occupied by national retailers. We are 100% leased or committed on the former Kmart building,” Matt Phillips, a founding member of Rise Partners, said. “We have a 9,000 square foot building that is going to replace the former fuel station. We have made a lot progress talking to restaurants to sort of anchor that building. We do have available space in the out parcel next to the restaurant.”
When asked what retailers would be moving into the space, Clarksville-Montgomery County Economic Development Council CEO Jeff Truitt said, “We’re really excited about new retail to come, and potentially a new eatery that may come to that area. We don’t know who they are yet. We are in an environment now where the retailers like to make those announcements themselves, but we are looking forward to hearing who comes into that facility.”
“We are looking forward to the improvements that come to that location,” Truitt said.
