Chipotle at Hammond Square

Shopping center nearing completion of multi-tenant retail redevelopment project.

Stirling Properties announces Chipotle Mexican Grill will celebrate its grand opening at Hammond Square shopping center on Thursday, August 27th. An official (socially distanced) grand opening and ribbon-cutting ceremony will be held in partnership with the Greater Hammond Chamber of Commerce.

The new fast-casual restaurant specializes in build-your-own tacos, burritos, salads and bowls, and will feature a Chipotlane, the brand’s drive-thru mobile/digital order pick-up lane, where customers can retrieve pre-placed orders without leaving their car. Chipotle will be located on Hammond Square Drive near the entrance to the shopping center.

Five Guys restaurant will also occupy 2,450 square feet of space right next door to Chipotle and is expected to open in early October of this year.

Stirling Properties commercial real estate company is nearing completion on the $15 million multi-tenant redevelopment project at Hammond Square. Demolition of the former Sears and Rite Aid buildings was completed last year to make way for the new retailers.

Five Below and PetSmart opened in the shopping center earlier this year. Michaels, HomeGoods and Walk-On’s Sports Bistreaux are also expected to join the tenant lineup with projected opening dates to be announced.

Rhonda Sharkawy, Senior Retail Leasing & Development Advisor with Stirling Properties, handled the lease transactions on behalf of the landlord.
