An Addison developer is building a $22 million shopping center at U.S. 380 and North Custer Road in Prosper, giving the fast-growing town its first big-box retail development. Site work for the 355,000-square-foot Prosper Plaza is under way on the 40-acre site, northwest of the prime intersection. Construction is scheduled to finish in about six months.
