LAKEWOOD RANCH — The developers of Lakewood Ranch’s Waterside Place have announced three new tenants: Atria Café, CROPJuice and Duck Donuts.
Atria Café and CROPJuice are expansions of local brands, while Duck Donuts, according to a statement, is a chain based in Duck, N.C., opening its first store in the Sarasota-Bradenton market. (It has three locations in the Fort Myers-Naples market.)
Waterside Place is a 36-acre development, scheduled to open in the first quarter of 2021. Already announced tenants include Derek The Salon, PAINT Nail Bar, SmithLaw, Foundation Coffee Co., The Yoga Shack, SoFresh and Kilwins, the release states.
“We’re thrilled to welcome these new tenants to Waterside Place’s already exceptional lineup of retailers,” LWR Commercial President Kirk Boylston says in the statement. “We look forward to fostering more relationships with businesses in our community and offering residents and their visitors exciting new dining options.”
Atria Café is an artisan-focused eatery that partners with local food purveyors. The Waterside Place location will be Atria Café’s second in Lakewood Ranch, following the eatery on Lakewood Ranch Boulevard, between state roads 64 and 70. “Our new Atria Café at Waterside Place will offer locals and visitors a cozy place to enjoy our artisan baked goods and locally-sourced ingredients, as well as our seasonally-focused menu,” co-owner Jim Angus says in the statement.
CROPJuice, meanwhile, known for its handcrafted organic juices made from fruits and vegetables, will be opening its fourth location with the Waterside Place location.
Waterside Place, on a 36-acre peninsula overlooking the mile-wide Kingfisher Lake, is part of Waterside, Lakewood Ranch’s first Sarasota County village. The retail hub will blend arts and entertainment destinations with 115,000 square feet of freestanding commercial, retail and office space; diverse dining options; an eight-acre park; and miles of nature trails.
