An Omaha-based health food chain and a salon now based in Fairway are the latest tenants planned for the Shops at Woodside Village in Westwood.
Developer Blair Tanner said Eat Fit Go Healthy Foods and Shelby Herrick Salon will be occupying space in his residential and retail project at 47th Place and Rainbow in Westwood. They will join two other retailers, Ulah men’s store and Blue Sushi Sake Grill.
Tanner said he’s close to announcing another restaurant tenant for the project, which would leave two more retail spaces available at the Shops at Woodside Village. He expects those spaces to also be occupied by restaurants and is in discussions with several groups.
“We don’t have signed leases, but we’re getting close,” Tanner said. “We have more demand than we have space. We’re being careful in having the right tenant mix. It’s been fun, it’s been great. We’re excited.”
Shelby Herrick Salon is currently at the Fairway Shops and plans to double the size of its business when it relocates to Woodside Village.
Eat Fit and Go‘s new outlet is part of the firm’s push into the Kansas City area. The chain also is opening a store in the Corinth Square shopping center in Prairie Village.
The 1,000 square-foot Corinth store will stock a wide variety of healthy meals prepared at a new central kitchen under construction in the Kansas City area. While there will be tables and a microwave should customers decide to eat at the new venue, most people will pick up pre-prepared meals to dine at home.
The refrigerators are stocked with fresh meals that contain no preservatives, low sodium, high protein and allergy friendly. Almost all of the meals have fewer than 600 calories.
Tanner said the next phase of the Woodside development will be the $20 million expansion of the health club. Once that is completed, a second phase, across 47th Place, will add more than 200 more residential units to the mix along with additional retail.
