SHORT PUMP, Va. — The developers of a 75-acre mixed-use project in Short Pump have tied down another tenant.

Starbucks finalized a lease last week to take 2,000 square feet in Markel | Eagle’s GreenGate development, which is taking shape along West Broad Street, just west of Short Pump Town Center.

The coffee shop’s building is being designed by local architecture firm Baskervill and will sit at the western end of the development.

German grocery chain Lidl will bookend the eastern side of the project with a 36,000-square-foot store. Overall plans call for nearly 200,000 square feet of retail and office space, 200 single-family homes and 50 townhomes.

“We’re fired up,” said J.B. Gurley, a principal with Markel | Eagle. “Obviously Starbucks is a national tenant and we’re thrilled to have them as a cornerstone. Starbucks is a place where people like to gather.”

Gurley emphasized that GreenGate continues to focus on luring local tenants to GreenGate, a strategy that has already proven successful.
