It’s a destination locally for everyone as well as regionally being at I-40 and Canada Road, with the completion of the interchange. Memphis is moving this direction,” said Maggie Gallagher, Director of Development, Lakeland District.
A couple of stores are expected to open by Thanksgiving. phase two will start in 2022 and will involve mostly with building out the lake and other infrastructure.
