HARTLAND - The future appearance of the Sendik’s Hartland Plaza is beginning to take shape.

During Monday’s Hartland Village Board meeting, the site plans for the exterior remodeling, landscape and lighting plans for Sendik’s Hartland Plaza, formerly Hartbrook Mall, 800 Hartbrook Drive, were approved.

The Balistreri family announced in November it will open a new Sendik’s Food Markets location in Hartland in 2014. As part of opening the new location, the Balistreri family has entered a contract with Devo Properties of Mequon to remodel a 30,000-square-foot vacant store space on the eastern end of the strip mall.

In addition, Devo Properties will enhance the entire 69,300-square-foot mall, which includes Biebel’s True Value, Great Midwest Bank and BP/Colburn’s Car Wash.

The Sendik’s Food Markets in Hartland will employ about 40 to 45 full-time employees and the same number of part-time employees.

Hartland Village Administrator Dave Cox said work has already been started on the interior of the Sendik’s, but exterior work on the strip mall likely won’t start until the weather gets milder.

Cox said the exterior of the property will not change a lot, but that the tower architectural features will be removed. The faŤade of the Great Midwest Bank, which is the newest part of the building, will be extended the length of the building, Cox said.

In addition, Devo Properties intends to add stormwater facilities including pipes under the parking lot to remediate some drainage issues.
