New commercial center to break ground across from Sky Sox

Kum & Go, a national chain of service stations, will anchor a new four-acre shopping center across the street from the Sky Sox Stadium.

Mark Useman, senior managing director at Sierra Commercial Real Estate, said he is marketing the new Shoppes at the Ball Park for Vista Equity Group.

Kum & Go is the first tenant at the Shoppes, which are located at Barnes Road and Tutt Boulevard. The company is expected to break ground on its 1.5 acre plot in the next two weeks.

Vista is also pre-leasing and building another 26,000-square-foot building for retail.

“We’re looking for an active sports bar,” Useman said. “Neighborhood and regional restaurants would be a good fit.”

He said that other service-oriented businesses like nail salons and liquor stores would be obvious tenants in the high-density area.
