Plans for The Grove were unveiled by Apple Development LLC in 2006. The 180-acre development is to include 250 homes and a roughly 600,000-square-foot shopping center. In 2007, the development was purchased by Kimco Developers Inc. for $20.6 million. With the announcement of the sale, it was also announced that Target, Lowe's, Kohl's, and Best Buy would be anchors for the shopping center. The "power center" is scheduled to open in 2009.
