Publix has expanded its footprint in North Carolina by opening a new location in the Research Triangle Park area of Raleigh-Durham.
The 46,791-square-foot grocery store at Marketplace at Ellis Crossing will be among a group of retailers in a 30-acre mixed-use property that is currently under development. Located at the northeast corner of Ellis Road and Watchorn Street, Marketplace at Ellis Crossing will include an additional 25,000 square feet of retail space and a mix of additional uses.
Other tenants joining Publix will be Sheetz, Heartland Dental, Lee Nails and It's a Southern Thing Kitchen & Bar.
Marketplace at Ellis Crossing is situated between two of North Carolina's fastest growing cities. The development sits in the heart of a biotech powerhouse known as Research Triangle Park, a collaborative innovation center set amidst three Tier-1 research universities that is home to more than 264 research companies and over 50,000 high-tech workers. The greater Raleigh area has an additional $1 billion in biotech laboratory construction underway, including Apple's plans to build a 1 million-square-foot campus in the area.
