WICHITA — Another major building is under construction at Regency Lakes next to where Cabela's opened last year.
According to documents filed with the city, Hobby Lobby is building a new 55,000-square-foot store.
Regency Lakes, a Laham Development property at the northwest corner of 21st and Greenwich, is home to SuperTarget, World Market and Hampton Inn & Suites among other things.
Hobby Lobby will go between World Market and Cabela's, which opened in an 80,000-square-foot space in March 2012.
It looks like the Hobby Lobby currently on the east side at 21st and Woodlawn in Brittany Center will be closing when the new one opens.
There's also one on the west side in the center at the southwest corner of Central and Ridge.
Building plans for the Regency Lakes Hobby Lobby indicate the store will be based on a new prototype for the craft chain.
Brad Saville with Landmark Commercial Real Estate handled the deal.
There are still a few pad sites left at the 60-acre development. That includes one on the corner, one between Subway and Chili's and one north of Chili's.
No one involved is talking just yet, but Hobby Lobby is slated to open yet this year, so look for more details soon.

A Michigan native, Carrie’s father was quite tragically transferred to Little Rock, Ark., in the middle of her sophomore year of high school. To make matters worse, her parents put her in a girls school. She recovered, though, and went on to enjoy being an English major at Hendrix College (the Harvard of the Ozarks, don’t you know). She worked for the weekly Arkansas Business and the statewide daily Arkansas Democrat-Gazette before moving to Wichita to be with her favorite writer and cook, husband Joe Stumpe.
