PHENIX CITY, AL (WTVM) – Phenix City is bringing economic growth and job opportunities to the community.

The city is working on a new retail development project. The city announced that it entered into an agreement to develop 19 acres of land located on Highway 431 south Tuesday.

"In the Fort Mitchell area, they don't really have a pharmacy, they don't groceries, they don't have fast food like the rest of Phenix City has access too," said Steve Smith, Phenix City Finance Director. "We are losing a lot of sales that go south to Eufaula, that go across the river to Columbus and when people go to Florida, this is a major road."

The new retail location is set to be 75,000 square feet.

“We started working on it with the last council about two years ago and it has taken a lot of people to get to this point,” said Phenix City Mayor Eddie Lowe.

The groundbreaking for the project is scheduled for April 2017.
