MarketSquare Virginia Beach
MarketSquare is a neighborhood center located at 2866 Virginia Beach Boulevard in Virginia Beach. MarketSquare, originally named Lynnhaven Shopping Center, comprises 176,000 square feet. In 2014, McLeskey saw the opportunity to reposition the center to attract national, regional and local retailers. The strategy was to renovate the center and create a vibrant market area that reflects the quality of the surrounding neighborhoods. The repositioning worked, and it has gotten the attention of several major retailers. MarketSquare is co-anchored by Hobby Lobby, a 53,000-square-foot retail outlet, a 42,000-square-foot Walmart Neighborhood Market, and Onelife Fitness, a 60,000-square-foot fitness center. Traffic data shows that over 37,000 vehicles travel past MarketSquare every day.
