OrthoCarolina Has Big Plans for This $12.4m Pineville Shopping Center

OrthoCarolina, a Charlotte-based orthopedic practice, will have some new digs in Pineville come 2019.

The practice is moving its location on Park Road to a new, 20,000-square-foot space in the former Terraces at Park Place shopping center, previously anchored by Bi-Lo, at the corner of Pineville-Matthews Road and Interstate 485.

Collett Capital acquired all 81,440 square feet of the shopping center for $12.35 million as of Aug. 8. Collett, along with partners Lions Gate Capital and OrthoCarolina, plans to transform the location into Terraces Medical Plaza. Starbucks and Sabor Latin Street Grill will also occupy space there.

“The new OrthoCarolina Pineville location will be both accessible and modern, and provide superior access for our patients near where they live,” says Dr. Bruce Cohen, chief executive of OrthoCarolina.

OrthoCarolina also opened a 16,000-square-foot, revamped office space in SouthPark in November of last year. That office includes a new, more modern design and 30 patient rooms. Employees there are also utilizing a technological system to get patients in and out faster.

Cathie McDonald, chief operating officer, told the Charlotte Business Journal the SouthPark office is part of a pilot to improve efficiency and access to care. Plans for the Terraces Medical Plaza project appear to fall under this model as well.

Flagship Healthcare Properties is leasing out the Pineville property. Spaces ranging from 5,000 square feet up to 25,000 square feet are available.

Flagship hopes to turn over the new space to OrthoCarolina in March, but the medical practice will continue to see patients at the office on Park Road until it moves into the new space next June.

OrthoCarolina employs about 1,700 people here. Its 32 orthopedic offices span from Boone to Kernersville, with nearly half of those concentrated in the Charlotte region. Other services include physical therapy, MRI and urgent care.

WinCo Foods’ Planned Tulsa Store Part of Chain’s Reach Into Oklahoma

By Rhett Morgan Tulsa World
Posted: Friday, January 27, 2017


WinCo Foods’ decision to locate a new store in Tulsa is part of an expansion of its footprint in Oklahoma and north Texas.

“Clearly, there’s a need for WinCo Foods in Tulsa because we offer incredibly low prices and a really good shopping experience,” a spokesman said Thursday in a telephone interview. “The people of Oklahoma, as we’ve seen so far in the stores that we’re about to open, people are incredibly hungry for it and very, very receptive. That’s incredibly encouraging to us.”

WinCo Foods, a 24-hour store whose corporate headquarters are in Boise, Idaho, this month signed a lease with Crossing Oaks Shopping Center owner Crossing Oaks Investment LLC, for a seven-acre parcel at 7136 S. Memorial Drive, Tulsa County Clerk records indicate.

The roughly 85,000-square-foot store in Tulsa is scheduled to employ about 180 full- and part-time workers and could open sometime in 2018, the spokesman said. It will join WinCo facilities in Moore (set to open in May), Midwest City (August) and Oklahoma City (September), the company representative said.

Although WinCo is new to Tulsa, one company executive has ties to the city. Rich Charrier, executive vice president and chief operating officer, grew up in Tulsa and graduated from Memorial High School in the 1970s.

The chain has scheduled a grand opening for its $135 million distribution center in Denton, Texas, in late February. The Lone Star State has nine WinCo stores of the more than 100 company locations nationwide.

“It’s about our commitment to the area,” the WinCo rep said. “What that allows us to do is cut out the middleman. We’re able to deal directly with producers and vendors. We can buy in huge quantities because of the size of our warehouse. Then we can pass the savings on to the customers based on that.”

WinCo, which doesn’t accept credit cards and has no baggers, positions itself as a “low-price leader” that provides a “world-class customer experience,” the spokesman said. It also operates on an Employee Stock Ownership Plan, meaning employees are partial owners of the company.

“That’s a very big part of our perception of ourselves,” he said. “We want this experience to be good because we work for ourselves.”

WinCo is part of the redevelopment planned at Crossing Oaks Shopping Center, which counts Sunshine Furniture and Ross Dress for Less among its biggest retailers.

New Supermarket Part of Redevelopment Plan for 71st and Memorial

Source:  Tulsa World

Published: January 19, 2017 By Rhett Morgan

A new supermarket brand for the city is planned for a $21.5 million redevelopment of the Crossing Oaks Shopping Center in south Tulsa, documents show.

WinCo Foods, a 24-hour store whose corporate headquarters are in Boise, Idaho, last week signed a lease with the center’s owner, Crossing Oaks Investment LLC, for a seven-acre parcel at 7136 S. Memorial Drive, Tulsa County Clerk records indicate.

Crossing Oaks, an Oklahoma limited liability company whose address is in Charlotte, North Carolina, last week secured a $21.5 million loan to underwrite the shopping center’s redevelopment, which includes WinCo’s roughly 87,000 square-foot store, documents show. Sunshine Furniture and Ross Dress for Less are among the biggest retailers in the center.

“This is going to be great not just for us residents in that area — I live very close to that — but improvements will boost all four corners there,” said Tulsa City Councilor Anna America, whose District 7 abuts the redevelopment. “We have these aging retail areas.”

“If you look at 51st, 61st, 71st and Memorial … they are big revenue-producing parts of town that as they age, we haven’t always kept them up. I’m very pleased that we are getting this kind of private investment.”

Neither representatives from Crossing Oaks, doing business as the Charlotte-based real estate firm Collett, nor WinCo immediately responded to email and telephone requests for comment.

High Gravity is a shopping center occupant that sells supplies for home beer brewing and winemaking. Co-owner Desiree Knott said she is unaware of detailed plans for the center, only that she has to move.

“It’s been a huge frustration,” said Knott, adding that High Gravity is moving in a couple of months to a nearby location. “We finally got them to tell us we were going to have to leave.”

The store is slated for an area that has a number of nearby grocery options, including Wal-Mart Supercenter, Reasor’s, Aldi, Sam’s Club and Natural Grocers.

WinCo Foods has stores in Arizona, California, Idaho, Nevada, Oregon, Texas, Utah and Washington. A WinCo store in Moore, the first in Oklahoma, is scheduled to open in the spring, a city spokesman there said.

Founded in 1967, WinCo has more than 100 locations and at least 15,000 employees companywide.

WinCo, whose customers bag their own groceries, prides itself on low prices, wide selection and friendly service. The company operates on a Employee Stock Ownership Plan, meaning employees are part owners of the company.

According to a story by Forbes, the company was purchased for $10 million from its former owner (Waremart) in 1985. By 2014, it had workers holding shares valued at close to $3 billion, the publication stated.
