Mesa, Ariz. — The site plan calls for 710 parking spaces and a Fry’s Fuel Center consisting of a gas canopy with nine fuel dispensers.
Brown Group has closed on a vacant piece of land in Mesa, Arizona, with plans to build Mulberry Marketplace, to be anchored by Fry’s Food & Drug. In total, 17.7 acres of land was purchased, with Brown Group partners Gary Brown and Todd Kjar buying 5.3 acres and Fry’s 12.4 acres. Mulberry Marketplace will be the third Fry’s-anchored center Brown Group has developed in the last five years. Work is scheduled to begin in July, including site work, on construction of a 123,419-square-feet Fry’s, and 12,000 square feet of shops attached to the south. The site plan calls for 710 parking spaces and a Fry’s Fuel Center consisting of a gas canopy with nine fuel dispensers. Deals are in the works for the three pads available for ground lease. Two of the pads are designed for drive-through restaurants and the third is for a bank.
