BEND, ORE – Compass Commercial Real Estate Services is pleased to announce La Rosa Mexican Kitchen will join the flourishing tenant mix at Brookswood Meadow Plaza, Bend’s uniquely local neighborhood shopping destination located at 19530-19570 Amber Meadow Drive at Brookswood Boulevard just south of Elk Meadow Elementary School.
The top rated Mexican restaurant has enjoyed mounting success in Bend’s Northwest Crossing neighborhood and is ready to offer southwest Bend residents a local destination for great food and margaritas.
“La Rosa’s reputation for quality and the success of their entire operation makes them an optimal tenant for Brookswood Meadow Plaza,” said Steve Toomey, CCIM, with Compass Commercial Real Estate Services who negotiated the lease along with Russell Huntamer, also with Compass Commercial. “With a Spring opening scheduled for Local Slice, an Italian food and pizza eatery owned by David Touvell, Chow’s proprietor on Bend’s Westside, Brookswood Meadow Plaza will offer Southwest Bend’s foodies and families expanded local dining options.”
In addition to Local Slice and La Rosa, Brookswood Meadow Plaza’s tenants include a diverse mix of retail, services and office space with tenants including River Rim Coffee House, The Offices at Brookswood, Snap Fitness, Toddles Preschool and the plaza anchor, CE Lovejoy’s Brookswood Market.
“Brookswood Meadow Plaza fits nicely with our mission of being a neighborhood restaurant,” said Carole DeRose, owner of La Rosa. “We’ve always identified ourselves as a family friendly restaurant in addition to serving as an adult date night destination. We had been looking at the Brookswood space for a while -- we love CE Lovejoy’s Market and felt that River Rim Coffeehouse and Local Slice are all great complements to our restaurant. We are very excited to expand our business to serve the community in southwest Bend.”
Brookswood Meadow Plaza serves a growing neighborhood with close to 10,000 households within a three mile radius and is the only shopping destination directly serving southwest Bend. The center is continuing its growth to better serve the nearby residential communities. “We are currently completing negotiations with It’s the Touch, a florist and plant shop retailer and we are actively seeking tenants providing professional services or looking for office space,” said Huntamer. "Brookswood Meadow Plaza offers an exclusive opportunity for businesses to lease space surrounded by a great tenant mix offered at an attractive rate,” Huntamer added.
“The addition of La Rosa and other new tenants enhances the synergy at Brookswood Meadow Plaza, furthering the great benefits to the neighborhood,” added John Keba with Compass Commercial, property and asset manager for Brookswood Meadow.
La Rosa will occupy 2,983 square feet of space in the southeast corner of the plaza right at Brookswood and Amber Meadow in the same building as River Rim Coffeehouse. The restaurant will commence a complete build out of the space with the goal of opening the new location in the Fall.
