RIVERVIEW — You can already live, work and eat at Winthrop Town Centre.

The area is home to five restaurants, a grocery store, apartments and a yogurt shop.

Still, developers say the desired town experience is not complete. This week, county commissioners gave the go-ahead to break ground on two new buildings at the corner of Winthrop Main Street.

Construction will begin this summer near the Regions Bank. Potential occupants are still being interviewed.

A breakfast eatery and a full-service Italian restaurant are among businesses planned to fill the 5,500- and 6,285-square-foot properties, which will include covered outdoor patios.

A landscaped pedestrian path will divide the buildings, and future tenants will bring something new to the center, developer John Sullivan said.

"It's something that will add to the village that we have already," he said. "We are trying to center everything you would want for your daily activities in one place. At an office park, maybe you have one sandwich shop or coffee place. Here you have choices"

Those choices include Green Iguana, Cappy's Pizzeria, Acropolis Greek Taverna, Moe's Southwest Grill and Five Guys Burgers & Fries.

In addition to the construction near the Regions, Sullivan said new development is planned throughout the plaza. A fitness club will pop up this year near the veterinary clinic. More buildings with commercial space downstairs and upstairs apartments are also in the works.
