As they proliferate to serve so many new affluent communities, necessity-based centers are having to move beyond the formula of a grocer, dry cleaner, nail salon, mobile provider, and Chipotle.

Phillips Edison’s Plano Market Street, a 167,000-sq.-ft. center situated in the booming corridor north of Dallas, does it with a fitness roster that might have been created by the Olympic Training Center. The Little Gym, UFC Gym, Gaia Flow Yoga, Plano Taekwondo, and NexGen Fitness provide the workouts.

Restore Cryotherapy and Modern Acupuncture provide the workout recovery. And the Market Street supermarket provides the organic produce.
