EWA (HawaiiNewsNow) - It's being called the largest retail project in Ewa history.

Property Development Centers, a subsidiary of Safeway Incorporation, announced Monday that it will buy a 20-acre site in Ewa to develop a 210,000 square-foot shopping center.

The site is at the corner of Fort Weaver Road and Keaunui Drive.

The anchor tenant of the development will be a Safeway that is about the same size as its Kapahulu Avenue store.

According to Property Development Centers, the shopping center will add 500 jobs to the area including 150 Safeway employees.

The company said it expects to break ground in the fall and open the store in late 2012.
