A nearly 20-year-old Short Pump shopping center just got the green light for its final leg.

Henrico County’s Planning Commission approved plans last week for the construction of a new building on the last developable parcel of the Brookhollow Shopping Center.

The plan calls for the construction of a 5,800-square-foot building in the parking lot of the Target store at 11290 W. Broad St. The new building will include a Panda Express restaurant and space for up to two additional retail tenants.

In addition to Target, the shopping center houses Home Depot, Kohl’s and Hobby Lobby. The new project will be on the last of three outparcels within the massive parking lots of the 40-acre shopping center. The other two are occupied by a McDonalds that was built in 1998 and a Sonic that opened in 2012.

Minnesota-based Target Corp., which owns the land, submitted the plan of development for the new project. The additional building should take up about 1.18 acres.

The project’s developer is California-based CFT Developments, the development arm of the Panda Restaurant Group. HC Klover Architect, a Kansas firm, is designing the building.

A representative for the Panda Restaurant Group said the company does not comment on pending developments.

The plans will have a few more minor hoops to jump through before construction can begin, but it will not have to go before Henrico’s Board of Supervisors.

Ground broke on the Brookhollow Shopping Center in 1997 with two buildings: a 134,000-square foot Target and what is now a 56,000-square-foot Hobby Lobby. A Kroger had been in the Hobby Lobby space until 2002, according to county records.

In 1998, Home Depot and Kohl’s settled into the shopping center, with 104,000 square feet and 86,000 square feet, respectively.

According to its website, Panda Express operates 1,745 restaurants nationwide. It currently has four locations in the Richmond area, one of which recently opened at 900 W. Grace St. near VCU.

Was wondering when this might happen. Predicted a single tenant would go in there though. Surprised the parking area next to Sonic is not considered a 4th available outparcel lot. Even in Dec., those parking spaces are hardly used.
