Cabela's store slated to anchor Nyberg Rivers development
CenterCal Properties CEO tells Tualatin residents Cabela's is a confirmed tenant
Tualatin can expect to welcome a Cabelas store in the next year and a half, according to CenterCal Properties Chief Executive Officer Fred Bruning.
Bruning clarified that a Cabelas anchor store is a virtual certainty in his companys proposed 307,000-square-foot retail center, awaiting finalization of a sub-lease agreement.
Bruning made the announcement during Wednesday night's developer meeting at the Umpqua Bank branch on Nyberg Street, where the public was invited to hear the companys plans and weigh in with comments and concerns about the proposed Nyberg Rivers development.
CenterCal signed a 75-year lease on the Martinazzi Avenue/Nyberg Street site in August 2012. Pre-application materials to the city, filed Feb. 22, showed that the scope of the nearly 32-acre development site included the property at 7455 S.W. Nyberg Road that has housed Jiggles strip club for the past three decades.
Development plans will take into account businesses that hold long-term leases with the Nyberg family, including Michaels. But Bruning confirmed the Jiggles club will not be included in Nyberg Rivers, which is set to open in fall 2014.
Speculation around Nyberg Rivers anchor store included rumors of a Target location, but Bruning told the public on Wednesday that a Cabelas outdoor store was a more appropriate, and all but finalized, choice. There is currently only one Cabelas store in Oregon, which is located in Springfield.
Bruning emphasized that the popular outdoor recreation supply chain would complement Nyberg Rivers aesthetic, which is designed to incorporate Tualatins natural heritage.
