Sentinel staff report–
Morning drivers traveling along Sunrise Boulevard on Tuesday could see a large crane setting new archway signage in place over one of the entrances to the Sunrise Village shopping plaza.

The signage is part of the latest renovation efforts at the center, which has undergone a major face-lift over the past two years — with the exception of the Rite Aid building, which is independently owned and has not been renovated.

Several new businesses have opened at the center, including a Starbucks drive-thru and Firehouse Subs. Plans show an unnamed “grocer” tenant coming to a 38,000-square-foot space at the center, along with a 36,000-square-foot fitness club.

The aging property was purchased by San Francisco-based Merlone Geier in 2017, with renovation plans approved in 2020. Changes at the 15-acre plaza have included demolition of several buildings, including the former Coco’s restaurant and Benihana. Exterior facades have also been added, along with modifications to existing roof lines to modernize the center.
