Stirling Properties to Develop Full-Service Walgreens Drugstore in Gulfport, MS

Walgreens Gulfport

Stirling Properties is pleased to announce the development of a new full-service Walgreens drugstore in Gulfport, Mississippi.  The proposed Walgreens will be located at the intersection of Pass Road and Interstate 49 at the location of the former Gulfmart Shopping Center.  Stirling Properties is providing development services, including lease negotiation, financing, and project management, to a third party owner of the property.

The 13,650 square-foot store will have a drive-thru window and full service pharmacy and will serve as a catalyst for future retail development of that corridor. The Gulfport store is slated to begin construction in January and open in the third quarter of 2013.

As a preferred developer for the Walgreens Company in the Gulf South, Stirling Properties has had a long standing relationship with the retailer. “Our team has been working successfully with Walgreens for the past 10 years and has delivered over 25 stores with many more in the pipeline”, said Peter Aamodt, Vice President of Development for Stirling Properties.  “Stirling is committed to finding new development opportunities for all of our retail clients in the Gulf South.”

Construction is also currently underway on a Stirling Properties’ Walgreens development located at 5518 Magazine Street in New Orleans, Louisiana.
