This should be a good year for wrecking balls.
Retail brokers say demolitions will be key to luring big retailers into Tucson’s core in 2016.
Deals were inked for nearly 1 million square feet of big-box space in the Tucson market last year. More than half was new construction.
The largest building under construction is the 100,000-square-foot Fry’s Food & Drug store on West Valencia Road near Midvale Park Road, data from the 2015 year-end Big Box Retail Report shows. Big box is defined as a retail space larger than 10,000 square feet.
