“We are confident in the future and prosperity of this area. Ambassador Town Center is positioned in an excellent location that is experiencing tremendous growth and attracting new retailers,” said Townsend Underhill, senior VP of development for Stirling Properties. “We are happy to continue our long and successful development history in the City of Lafayette.”
