MCKINNEY, TEXAS — Venture Development Group is developing a 69,000-square-foot Sprouts Farmers Market, which will be located on the northeast corner of Virginia Parkway and Hardin Road in McKinney. This will be Sprouts’ eighth location in the greater Dallas/Fort Worth area for the Phoenix-based grocer that specializes farm-fresh produce and other organic groceries. Sprouts will be housed in Venture Development Group’s shopping center project the company is building on 15 acres. Aside from Sprouts, the project will feature 25,000 square feet of retail space and three pads, totaling six buildings. Phase I of the project is scheduled to break ground in the first quarter of 2009 with completion slated for the third quarter of 2009.
