Union commission approves zoning change for Union Promenade, a 61.8 acre project in heart of city

Union Promenade, a strategic mixed-use project, involving a 61.8 acre site in the heart of Union has been approved by the Union City Commission with a major Zoning Map Amendment.

The project, between U.S. 42 and Old Union Road, is a mixed-use concept that includes office space, 50 single family residential homes, approximately 300 multifamily housing units, and approximately 13 individual outlet buildings which will house both upscale retail and restaurant experiences.

The strategic and highly visible location at 9253 and 9357 Old Union Road (US RT 42 between the Villas of Fowler’s Creek and Union Fire Station) will be a city focal point facing a well-traveled state highway.

The building architecture and signage will meet the requirements as outlined in the 2000 Union Town Plan. Additionally, countless considerations have gone into the Union Promenade Development Concept Plan to ensure the highest level of quality expected by residents. The safe and ADA compliant design offers a walkable commercial district and will promote a “live, work, play” philosophy.

According to the 2020 Census, the City of Union is now home to 7,416 residents. The Union Promenade will help sustain community growth by providing new services and job opportunities to residents.

“The City Commission is dedicated to maintaining the small-town appeal of Union while managing the city’s rapid growth,” said Mayor Larry Solomon. “The Union Promenade project will provide a welcome gathering space and heightened quality of life and services.”
Letters of intent have been received from Taste of Belgium, Dewey’s Pizza, United Dairy Farmers, Villa Mocha Coffee Shop, the Stone Creek Dining Company, Goodwood Brewery, City Bird Tender Store, a Food & Wine Shop, Blaze Cigar Lounge, Kids Story Children Care Center, Lux Lounge Medical Spa, a pet grooming salon, and a beauty salon.

Additionally, a potential hospital outpatient operation has expressed interest in the 60,000 sq.ft. of office space.

The Union Promenade is expected to have most commercial lots open in 2023.
