Egg & I and Jimmy John's restaurants as well as a Beauty First store and salon and the Bare Body Shop will be the first tenants to occupy Midlands Place, a $19 million Papillion development led by Rockbrook Village owner Russ Daub.

The Bare Body Shop will offer laser hair removal, tattoo removal, Botox and other skin rejuvenation services. Daub said the announced tenants were expected to open early in the fourth quarter.

He said each business signed on because of Papillion's strong economy and the location of the development, which is at the southeast corner of Nebraska Highway 370 and 84th Street, next to Midlands Hospital.

In all, the development is expected to have 35 tenants, including a mix of retail, office, service, restaurant, medical and hotel, and employ about 300 people, Daub said.

“A neighborhood shopping center can be a very large generator of business activity,” Daub said. He estimated the center would generate about $30 million per year.

The development will have two buildings ready for occupancy by August with plans to build four more.

A ceremonial event for the project is scheduled at the site today at 9 a.m.
