On January 2, a CST convenience store with self-service fuel and drive-through car wash facility opened on the northwest corner of Market Street and Verrado Way in the community’s Marketside District.
Verrado’s Marketside District is a 60-acre mixed use district adjacent to the I-10 freeway at the gateway to the community that includes Banner Health Center and Verrado Coffee Company.
“Verrado residents were eagerly awaiting fuel service and also a convenience store and car wash in the community. This location gives the CST team the profile to draw in a broader reach of customers who are coming in and out of the Valley,” said Mike Burke, senior vice president of commercial for DMB.
DMB Verrado and N2I One, LLC, an affiliate of CST Brands, Inc., closed the sale of the approximately 1.6 acre site in July 2015. CST is one of the largest independent retail and wholesale distributors of motor fuel and convenience merchandise, freshly prepared food and other services in North America. Its over 1000 retail locations in the U.S. operate primarily under the Corner Store banner.
“We are very excited to develop this store in Buckeye,” said CST CEO Kim Lubel. “We look forward to offering this community our clean, friendly environment to conveniently refuel, restock and refresh as we delight more customers every day.”
Continued Marketside District development could include pads for restaurants, shopping, medical, hotels and residential units that will be developed over the coming years. The district’s architectural character will complement the hometown feel of Verrado, while being more accessible to a larger market.
“Our plan is to grow Marketside at Verrado into a regional draw for shopping, dining and ultimately bringing new residential and employment opportunities to Verrado,” said Mike Burke.
Home to over 8,000 residents, Verrado is entitled for 14,000 homes over 8,800 acres. Victory at Verrado, the community’s newest district, is the first 55 plus phase of the master planned community.
