Ward Parkway Center has been updated inside and out with evidence of more foot traffic despite expansion development and some empty storefronts.

Ward Parkway Center is set to develop the former Dillard’s site — six years after the department store closed. Plans currently call for a 31,000-square-foot, U-shaped addition with six restaurant tenants and a pedestrian plaza, all on south end of the center. The two middle buildings would be 18,000 square feet with smaller tenants on either side. Buildings on the north and south end of the addition would include patios. Legacy Development, which manages the property and is overseeing the development, is in talks with about a dozen restaurants and is focusing on the best tenant mix of four full-service and two limited-service operations. The tenants will be announced during a groundbreaking ceremony in January (2016).

Chick-fil-A has a pad site outside of Target.
