Shop//Stop will occupy the 27,000-square-foot retail concourse and include up to 30 retailers ranging from food and beverage to apparel and technology accessories.

Columbus Development will invest $6.5 million to improve the space, including upgraded signage, furniture and finishes, along with the installation of air conditioning throughout the concourse. Shop//Stop will benefit from high pedestrian traffic as more than 21 million people pass through the concourse annually. The project will be complete in early 2015.

Susan Fine, principal with Columbus Development, is the principal developer on the project.
