RJ Development + Advisors’ Principals are responsible for the development of several Rite Aid Pharmacies across New England. Among these is the Rite Aid facility that is a part of the Rt. 34 masterplan development in New Haven, CT. This 14,673 square foot facility is unlike any other Rite Aid in the region. Designed by New Haven based Svigals + Partners, the facility has been meticulously detailed with specialty architecture and green elements. From the specialty brick courses to its green ‘living’ walls, the building incorporates forward-thinking design elements rarely found in prototypical retail / pharmacy architecture.
Other Rite Aid developments, overseen by RJDA’s Principals include the Fair Haven, VT store, which is currently under construction and is scheduled for a November 2017 delivery. This was a unique project from the outset as it required adherence to Vermont’s ACT 250, the Land Use and Disposition Act, that seeks to mitigate the effects of development by reviewing all aspects of the development at the State level. Once completed, the Fair Haven, VT store will be a free-standing 11,151 square foot relocation of Rite Aid’s existing in-line facility.
In addition to Rite Aid, RJDA’s Principals have also successfully developed for many other national retailers, including: Starbucks, AT&T, Great Clips, and Family Dollar, among others. One such development was the recently completed 10,750 square foot shopping center located at 893 North Colony Road in Wallingford, CT. This development is anchored by a Starbucks with a drive-thru, and co-tenanted by AT&T, Great Clips, Harstan’s Jewelers and Panchero’s Mexican Grill.
Whether it be a new development for a single tenant user, a new construction shopping center development, a mixed-use development, or a repositioning of an existing property — RJDA brings the requisite skills and experience for successful execution in the retail arena.
