Four New Retail Stores Open in Belton Gateway
BELTON, MO—March 13, 2018— Four retailers have celebrated March grand openings in Belton Gateway’s $63 million second phase, including Marshalls, Party City, Petco, and Five Below.
Ross Dress for Less is scheduled to open later this spring in the $136 million, 47-acre mixed-use development located just west of I-49 at Y Highway. Kneaders Bakery opened in the summer of 2017.
“Belton Gateway is quickly becoming Cass County’s premier retail destination, thanks to its location and easy highway access,” said Belton Economic Development Director Carolyn Yatsook. “We are seeing a tremendous amount of activity in this corridor, which offers
retailers great visibility and convenient highway access due to a new interchange.”
In addition, the relocation of Turner Road has been completed and provides improved traffic flow to the North Scott redevelopment area. In addition, new traffic signals at Y Highway and Turner are installed, allowing drivers to turn left onto Y Highway toward I-49, something that previously was not possible.
Developed by Christie Development, Belton Gateway’s two phases are master planned for a total of more than 182,000 square feet of developable space. The project’s $70 million Phase One included a 58,000-square foot Academy Sports and Outdoors store, a 55,000-square foot Hobby Lobby, and two multiple-tenant retail buildings that are home to Belton Family Dental Care, Fazoli’s, and Cricket Wireless. Phase One has potential for construction of a 20,000-square foot hotel.
