Eastern Shore Centre is a 540,000-square-foot lifestyle center located in Spanish Fort, a suburb of Mobile, Alabama, at the intersection of Malbis Parkway and Interstate 10. A landscaped perimeter road, Eastern Shore Boulevard, connects the lifestyle and power center components of this hybrid regional center. An apartment community, The Arlington Show more...
at Eastern Shore Centre, was developed in the northeastern section of the complex. Eastern Shore Centre is Baldwin County's first large-scale, multi-anchored regional shopping center and the first lifestyle center to open in South Alabama.
Developed by The MGHerring Group and designed by CMH Architects of Birmingham, it officially opened on November 17, 2004, following a slight delay caused by Hurricane Ivan, although the Dillard's department store was operating a few weeks earlier. The lifestyle center is anchored by the Dillard's and Belk department stores, while the bookstore Barnes & Noble and the home furnishings retailer Bed Bath and Beyond are additional junior anchors. In-line merchants include Pottery Barn, Williams-Sonoma, Build-A-Bear Workshop, Ann Taylor LOFT, Coldwater Creek, Charlotte Russe and Kirkland's Home. Numerous eateries and service-oriented businesses are situated on outparcels in the parking lots of both Eastern Shore Centre and Eastern Shore Plaza. As of fall 2010, the regional shopping center is managed by Jim Wilson and Associates.²²²²²²²²
