The October 2010 Grand Opening of the Shops The of Grand River is one of the only major retail developments constructed during the height of the economic recession. The 90% occupancy of this $127 million project at Grand Opening is testament to the viability of this project and the development vision of the Daniel Corporation to bring a high end value retail destination to Birmingham, AL.

The 350,000 square foot outlet center represents just a small portion of the 7,500 acre master planned, mixed-use project in development by the Daniel Corporation, in partnership with the Retirement Systems of Alabama and USS Real Estate. The Shops also represents the only development in the state of Alabama to earn Audubon International’s Gold Signature Sanctuary status for its environmentally sustainable design.

Based on the initial success of the first 75 inline stores in Phase 1 from tenants such as Kenneth Cole, Nike, Banana Republic, Polo, Coach, and Tommy Hilfiger, the project’s 2012 Phase 2 will solidify Grand River as a multi-state regional destination.

Skye Group provided complete Tenant Coordination services for all tenants. Skye Group also leased the center’s 7 tenant food court to full occupancy for the Grand Opening. Additionally, as the center’s Property Manager, the Skye team provided management, accounting, operations and marketing for the Shops at Grand River.
