Jupiter south of us, as well as Port St. Lucie itself,” she said.
Tradition Square, which contains an attractive mix of small
businesses and places to eat, is seeing customers from inside
and outside Tradition, too.
“You used to be able to drive in and find a place to park
right next to where you were going,” said Salty Home retailer
Jessica Soumoff, who opened the home accessories and
gift store in Tradition Square with her sister Patricia two
years ago. “But not anymore. Traffic has increased as people
have been finding out about Tradition, and I know we are
definitely drawing people from out of this area. In fact I just
had someone in here from Jupiter.”
The Landing opened in July 2007 when Target cut the ribbon
on its first Port St. Lucie store. Anchored by Target, the
600,000-square-foot shopping center is visible from the interstate
right at the Tradition exit, making it the only shopping
center on the Treasure Coast with instant access from I-95.
There is plenty of room for it to grow and for an additional
shopping center to open nearby.
Amanda Mrozek, an executive vice president at Core
Commercial Realty, said leases have just been signed for GNC
and Boca Tanning. Both are expected to open this summer.
“We’ve generated a lot of interest and are evaluating several
potential projects, though we have nothing to announce at
this time,” Mrozek said. >>
Tradition Square, with its traditional look, is a popular place to shop, eat and gather for Tradition residents and visitors.
Jessica Soumoff has seen a big increase in traffic since she and
her sister, Patricia, opened Salty Home two years ago.
