The Village at Meridian is a project owned and developed by CenterCal Properties with an exceptional offering of retailers, and luxury architecture and landscape design. The Village sits on approximately 100 acres on Eagle & Fairview, the busiest traffic intersection in the state.The Village at Meridian has created an original book, New Wings, based on the concept of the fountain sculptures located in Fountain Square at The Village at Meridian. Written by Regional Marketing Director Ramona Richardson, the book’s focus on education and literacy are the driving force behind the sculptures – giving children wings to fly and taking them on a storybook journey to all corners of the earth. Book sales benefit four local non-profit organizations, Ballet Idaho, Meridian Symphony, Treasure Valley Children’s Theater and Meridian Library District. In 2004, Fred Bruning and Jean Paul Wardy formed CenterCal Properties, LLC, to develop and acquire fine retail properties throughout the western United States.
