Patrons head for the Breathing Room yoga studio past leased but as yet unsigned retail spaces in 32nd Avenue Crossing Wednesday.

32nd Street Crossing full up with tenants

It may not look it, but 32nd Street Crossing is full.

It may not look it, but 32nd Street Crossing is full.

All of the space in the nearly 26,000-square-foot commercial building at 4758 32nd St. is now subject to unconditional lease agreements, said Brett Salomons, an associate with Ralph Salomons Commercial Inc. He expects all of the tenants to be in place and operating by summer.

The Breathing Room yoga studio and Cornerstone Dental Group have been open for some time already. They were joined in December by Red Deer optometrist Dr. Dean Willoughby, who relocated his practice from Bower Place Shopping Centre in December.

Kim Lu Nails & Spa, which provides nail and pedicure services, as well as waxing, opened its doors on May. 28. And 32nd Street Crossing gained a convenience store on May 2, with the opening of Winks.

Winks store owner Varinder Sidhu, whose other local businesses include Econo Lodge Inn & Suites and Holiday Liquor Store in Gasoline Alley, said he chose the franchise because he wanted a well-known brand. In addition to a variety of hot and cold snacks and meals, grocery staples and an ATM machine, the business has an in-store Sub Hut, where made-to-order subs are available.

Winks will celebrate its grand opening next Friday.

Scheduled to open in 32nd Street Crossing at the beginning of July is a family medical clinic, with a number of doctors from The Parsons Clinic moving there. The longtime downtown medical clinic is closing at the end of this month.

A pharmacy is also slated to open in the commercial centre next month, but Salomons said he wasn’t authorized to identify its name or operator. Similarly, there is another medical use tenant and a medical-retail business committed to 32nd Street Crossing that Salomons declined to name at this time.

32nd Street Crossing faces 49th Avenue and is bordered by 32nd Street to the south and 33rd Street to the north. Developed by Red Deer businesswoman Fran Ding, it was built at the former location of Red Deer County’s administrative headquarters.

“It’s a good location,” said Salomons, who expects strong traffic flows at the site once all the businesses there are operating.
