Work begins on $ 3.8 million Hampton Cove shopping center anchored to Dunkin ‘Donuts
Leeland Ventures of Huntsville will open a $ 3.8 million retail center in Hampton Cove on Wednesday.
The 10,000 square foot Leeland Plaza, located at 6501 US 431, will be anchored by Hampton Cove’s first Dunkin ‘Donuts.
At full capacity, Leeland Plaza will create up to 75 jobs. It will also house the Champs Cuts hair salon, Asian Express and a national physiotherapy practice. Three additional retail / medical spaces, ranging in size from 1,400 to 4,200 square feet, are still available for rent through Sherry Lee at Bill Poole Realty.
TJ Lee, founder and chairman of Leeland Ventures, a business development company, said the company’s strategy is to “provide turnkey / bespoke build, which allows Dunkin ‘Donuts to spend most of the time. from its capital investment to furnishings, equipment, and to focus on the day-to-day operations of the business.
This will be Blake Robinson’s 11th Dunkin ‘Donuts in northern Alabama. He opened his first with his father on Memorial Parkway 10 years ago.
“This Dunkin ‘Donuts project is special to me because I live three miles from here,” said Robinson. “Hampton Cove has been on my radar for a long time, but we felt it was important to populate greater Huntsville with plenty of convenient locations first. The timing for this location is perfect.
Becky Hopkins and Mike Antonio are opening their first hair salon in Leeland Plaza, although Hopkins has been cutting hair for Great Clips for 15 years and winning national hair contests for years.
