    • John Ross Hamant, 1949 – 2017: An Appreciation
      It is with heavy hearts that we note the passing of longtime Colonial Williamsburg Foundation employee and veteran character interpreter, John Hamant.  Mr. Hamant, a Baltimore native, earned a bachelor’s degree in theater production and a master’s degree in acting and directing from the University of Arizona, but it was his love of archaeology that first...R […]
    • Handling the Heat: Animal Safety & High Temperatures
      The heat index soared this weekend, and that naturally raises questions about safety—for both our costumed interpreters and animals. Besides plenty of water, breaks, and shade, Coach & Livestock utilizes a heat index policy for working animals.  Cattle—like dogs—cannot sweat, so they are removed from work when the heat index reaches 95°.  Horses can swea […]
    • THE WORD ON DOG STREET: REVERSING ATTENDANCE TRENDS
      The word on DoG Street is that the program changes at Colonial Williamsburg over the past few years have led to a decline in attendance. In fact, just the opposite is true. In 2014, after President Mitchell Reiss and his new team brought innovative program changes to CW, attendance rose after a seven-year decline. For...Read More »
    • An Open Letter to the Colonial Williamsburg Community
      The role of Williamsburg in America’s founding is nothing short of extraordinary. In the years leading up to the Revolution, this colonial capital city was a thriving center of culture, enterprise, education — and revolutionary ideas. It was here — in these homes, government halls and taverns — that Thomas Jefferson, James Madison and so...Read More » […]

Settlers Market Announces New Additions To Stores.

imageAs I reported back on Oct 15th a number of leases have been signed for the Settlers Market.  The new owner of the center, Federal Capital Partners has  announced additional lease agreements to bring four additional anchor tenants to Settlers Market, one of the most prominent planned development sites in Williamsburg and the gateway to the New Town Master Planned Development Corridor.

imageStein Mart, HomeGoods and ULTA recently signed leases to open their doors along the Monticello Avenue corridor, Williamsburg’s now dominant retail hotbed. Stein Mart signed a lease for 30,000 square feet at the north end of the center adjacent to ULTA, which in turn signed for 10,000 square feet. A 25,000-square foot HomeGoods store is planned for the anchor space adjacent to Michaels, which had re-committed to the shopping center program earlier this year.

HomeGoods is an off-price home fashions store, providing a selection of high—quality, unique home fashions, including brand and designer name merchandise at discount price. The stores offer an ever-changing selection of unique items from kitchen essentials, rugs, lighting, bedding, bath to a wide range of furniture and appliances.

imageUlta Salon is a chain of beauty superstores in the United States. Each store is outfitted with a full-service salon as well. Ulta carries a variety of cosmetics and  skincare brands, men’s and women’s fragrances, and hair care products.

These category leaders will anchor the next phase of retail development slated to be completed by fall 2012, with a construction start expected in early 2012. In addition to the new anchors, a lease has been signed with Sleepy’s Mattress for the entire 7,300-square foot retail building fronting Monticello Ave.

Plans are still in the works for the residential component of Settlers Market. According to the developer they are exploring the market to see what would suit the area best. What would you like to see at Settlers Market ? I think an area of one level patio type attached villa / condos  would be perfect. Of course you can’t build as many but a product like that in a walk-able environment, close to everything !

imageWhen fully developed, Settlers Market shopping center will feature 250,000 square feet of well merchandised retail space with  planned residential townhomes located along Settlers Market Boulevard adjacent to the center. FCP and its partner, Westmoreland Partners, are represented in retail leasing by the Norfolk office of The Shopping Center Group.
