A new set of shops should pop up along Eagle Rd. at Ustick soon. Barclay Group won approval from the City of Meridian for the 26,900 square foot project last month.

The project would bring a series of shops facing Ustick Rd.

The property is surrounded on two sides by the future VillaSport project. BoiseDev first broke news of that project last year. It would bring a massive resort-style club and spa to Meridian. Measuring more than 99,000 square feet, it would bring indoor and outdoor pools, waterslides, cafes, fitness areas and many other features to the corner.
