Johnston Town Center

The City of Johnston is working with The Hansen Company for the Johnston Town Center design. The City broke ground in October 2019. The Town Center Project is a public-private initiative to encourage redevelopment of Merle Hay Road at the intersection of NW 62nd Avenue to create a commercial center for the City of Johnston that will serve is a local destination for dining, shopping and entertainment. The central green space "The Yard" will feature regular event programming including concerts, a splash pad and a seasonal ice skating rink.

The Johnston Town Center construction in and around the Johnston City Hall are nearing completion! This includes the final touches on the parking, landscaping, signage and artwork.  Sod has been installed in The Yard, the large green space west of Johnston City Hall. The splash pad/patio is on the west end of The Yard. This area will be converted into a synthetic ice rink in the winter, with ice skate rentals and concessions available. Be sure to follow our social media channels (Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram) and website for details.

Hansen Companies, the City’s development partner in the Johnston Town Center, have submitted plans for the first of two commercial buildings to be constructed in the northeast corner of Merle Hay Road and NW 62
nd Avenue beginning this fall.  While tenants have not been officially announced, they will be shared soon.
