Building with Krispy Kreme breaks ground in East Anchorage

Published: Updated:





Alaskans are one step closer to getting served hot Krispy Kreme donuts. Ground was officially broken Wednesday afternoon for the building that will house the chain donut shop. Other tenants include a BurgerFi restaurant and Body Renew fitness center. It’s all part of the Creekside development.


“What was once a trailer park has now turned into a vibrant, economic community,” said Jack Lewis, the franchisee of BurgerFi and Krispy Kreme.


Lewis is referring to the former 68-acre Alaska Village Trailer Park, which was demolished to make way for Begich Middle School, a housing complex, Walgreens and now Creekside.


The development is expected to generate 20 construction jobs and 60 permanent jobs once the building is complete.


“The economic impact from the investment side is huge,” Lewis said.


Developers said the project will be accessible by foot, bicycle and car. Construction is slated to finish in June of 2016.
