The City of Ridgefield, Washington, has seen a lot of population growth in recent years – so much growth, in fact, that they are the fastest growing city in the state. With the population increase comes a need for services to support the growing community. A survey of residents revealed that a grocery store was a top priority, but telling the story of why Ridgefield was a great place for grocers to invest was a challenge that city leaders needed help to address.
In this case study, you will learn how Buxton helped Ridgefield to identify a potential grocery anchor, overcome obstacles in the development process, and ultimately recruit a 78,000 sq. ft. grocery-anchored development.
