Glendale Shopping Center
A Schuckman Realty informational packet shows plans to build a new shopping center in Glendale.

A 350,000-square-foot shopping center could be coming to Glendale, according to a brochure by Schuckman Realty obtained by The Courier.

The center will be located on 8200 Cooper Ave., next to The Shops at Atlas Park, and will be built in two phases.

Phase one, which is expected to be completed by fall 2015, consists of more than 137,000 square feet of retail, 133,650 square feet of storage, about 500 free parking spots and outdoor seating areas. While phase two will have about 80,000 square feet of retail and will be finished in spring 2016.

The proposed development will have three anchor tenants along with small stores, restaurants with outdoor seating and freestanding pad buildings with drive-thrus.

Some Glendale leaders and residents are worried the area will be inundated with traffic.

“I don’t think it is a very good spot to put more shops. There is too much traffic,” said Michelle Cook-Lopez, a member of the Glendale Property Owners Association. “Personally I think we need more manufacturing jobs. We are losing that in Glendale.”

Schuckman Realty did not return calls or emails for comment.
