A Pure Barre Fitness Center will fill the last remaining vacant space on the Deerfield Square Mall while a martial arts center plans to open behind the mall on Robert York Avenue, pending approval by the Deerfield Plan Commission and the Village Board of Trustees.
Should all approvals be obtained, the entire Deerfield Square development will have all but 2,500 square feet of its retail space leased.
“The general improvement in the economy, although be it slow, and excellent anchor tenants have helped us lease the space,” Chris Siavelis, the senior vice president of CRM Properties Group, Ltd., the shopping center’s owner said.
Pure Barre Fitness Center joins Robert Vance and Tria Boutique filling the last three available spaces in the mall. Pure Barre utilizes a ballet bar to help people achieve tone and fitness, according to Village Associate Planner Kathie LeVeque.
The Robert York Road building immediately west of the mall has been slower to lease, but the Gracie Barra Northshore Martial Arts Center will take all of the area once occupied by Curves and much of the Starland Creative Center, leaving 2,500 square feet available.
Both new businesses will present their proposals for a special use permit at a public hearing before the Plan Commission at 7:30 p.m. Thursday at Village Hall.
