Garden Grove

Sprouts gets planners’ OK

SPROUTS FARMERS MARKET will be coming to Garden Grove, to be built on the site of the old Vons Pavilion building on Chapman Avenue, near Brookhurst Street (Orange County Tribune photos).

From market to market.

The site at 9852 Chapman Avenue, which for 20 years was occupied by a Vons/Pavilions supermarket, will be returning to a similar use after the Garden Grove Planning Commission voted Thursday to approve the creation of a new shopping center anchored by a Sprouts Farmer’s Market store.

To create the Pavilion Plaza West, the existing 76,000-square foot building will be demolished and three new buildings erected on the land, located on the south side of Chapman between Brookhurst Street and Gilbert streets.

The largest building, composed of 51,280-square feet, will be occupied in part by the Sprouts. There will also be an 11,200-square foot building for retail/restaurant use and a 3,500-square foot drive-through restaurant building. The entire project will face Chapman.

According to city staff, the process of knocking down the existing structure and constructing the new center is expected to take 18 to 24 months. However, the start of de-construction could commence as soon as next week.

Also on Thursday, planners selected Daisy Perez Castellanos as chair of the commission, with Josh Lindsay as vice chair.
