Publix to anchor Crossings at Wildlight

The project will feature three multi-tenant retail buildings, two single- or multi-tenant buildings, and up to three outparcel buildings.
Publix will become the first grocer within Wildlight and will join other commercial tenants including Tasty’s Fresh Burgers and Fries, Firehouse Subs, Anejo Cocina Mexicana, and Cold Stone Creamery. Construction will begin on the project in March, with expected completion in spring 2022.
