Sembler Breaks Ground on Amberly Place, Cary, NC
The Sembler Company recently held a ceremonial groundbreaking event to mark the beginning of construction at Amberly Place, a new 77,000 square foot Publix-anchored neighborhood shopping center located at the Northwest corner of Greenlevel Church Road and Carpenter Fire Station Road.
Over 50 people attended the event alongside, Sembler senior executives, Publix Super Markets representatives, and Town of Cary officials.
During the ceremony, Sembler presented Cary’s new neighborhood school, Hortons Creek Elementary, with a donation from its School Grant Program. Hortons Creek Principal Dr. Sandy Chambers was also in attendance to accept the grant award. “Sembler has been partnering with many elementary schools over the last few years and we are happy to add Cary’s newest school to our program,” said Ron Wheeler, Sembler’s CEO.
The 77,000 square foot shopping center will be known as Amberly Place and will feature a pedestrian-oriented design, anchored by a Publix Supermarket and accompanied by a mix of retailers and restaurants.
Amberly Place will augment Sembler’s growing footprint in North Carolina where the company currently owns and manages grocery-anchored centers in Raleigh and Charlotte. “The shopping center market in this region is very healthy right now, and poised for growth,” said Josh Beyer, Sembler’s Senior Vice President of Development. “We look forward to developing this project for the Cary community and continue to seek other opportunities in the area.”
