Butler Enterprises will start construction of Butler North this summer with infrastructure work. Buildings will start going up early next year. The company recently announced it hired Jode Balsiger as director of construction and project manager for Butler North and the redevelopment of what is now Butler Plaza East to become Butler Town Center, an open-air, walkable town center near Archer Road and Southwest 34th Street. Butler North, at the site of a former mobile home park to the north of the current plaza, was approved for up to 2.5 million square feet of retail space, 250,000 square feet of office, 500 hotel or motel rooms and as many as 1,000 apartments or condominiums.
