“The spirit of the North Market merchants is the primary source of inspiration – not just for the project’s name, but for its vision overall. Visitors, residents, and guests will see this legacy reflected in architectural details, branding of spaces, and features and experiences throughout the property, celebrating merchant stories old and new," said Jim Merkel, the CEO of Rockbridge.

The project will bring an additional 1,600 jobs during the construction period. After construction is complete, an additional 600 jobs and nearly $1 billion in economic impact over the first decade are expected.
