Groundbreaking has been scheduled for Sept. 15 for the highly anticipated Litchfield Square development, formerly known as "City Center."
The ceremony will take place at 9 a.m. behind City Hall, 214 W. Wigwam Blvd. in Litchfield Park.
Workers began preparing the roughly 26 acres for constriction in July.
The $52 million infrastructure project, which will be built in five construction phases on the east side of Litchfield Road north of Wigwam Boulevard, will include 400,000 square feet of multilevel buildings containing shops, restaurants, offices and residential spaces surrounding a 2.5 acre park.
The design will mirror the Santa Barbara-style architecture of Litchfield Elementary School, The Wigwam and The Church at Litchfield Park.
The city has dedicated $26 million to building out the structures, park and surrounding streets.
The city expects the project to be completed by 2028.
