A new Albertsons is in the works in south Meridian.

On Tuesday Meridian City Council approved the final plat for Firenze Plaza Subdivision, a proposed commercial development with 11 commercial buildings lots, including an Albertsons, on the northwest corner of South Eagle and East Amity roads.

The timeline for construction of the Albertsons is still up in the air, according to Kathy Holland, spokeswoman for Albertsons Companies Intermountain Division.

The developer, The Land Group, Inc, is proposing a 58,164-square-foot Albertsons store with a 3,083-square-foot fuel center and 353 parking stalls. The operating hours for the lots were set from 5 a.m. to 1 a.m. every day.

The preliminary plat for the site includes a 3,200-square-foot bank with a drive-thru, a 5,000-square-foot fast food building and three shop or restaurant spaces varying in size from 4,500 square feet to 6,000 square feet.

Within the plan are two remaining parcels to the north and west of the proposed Albertsons building. The north parcel is roughly 427,700 square feet, and the east parcel is roughly 520,500 square feet with four roughly 22,000-square-feet commercial or office spaces on its southwest corner.

Council gave Firenze Plaza the thumbs-up in January 2017. That approval included the annexation of 16 acres zoned business community for Firenze Plaza and another 24 acres zoned medium-density housing.
