The slightly tweaked site plan calls for a 21-acre shopping center at the southeast quadrant of the interchange -- across from Disney's iconic mouse ear-shaped power poles.
The plan shows a layout of 11 buildings accessed by a newly constructed roundabout entrance on Celebration Boulevard. The center would be anchored by a "neighborhood grocery store," and would include a mix of retail and restaurant uses, according to the project description.
Disney's Celebration Company owns the parcel, which lies adjacent to the new Emerson Apartmentsand across from Celebration High School. A Schmidt affiliate company has the property under contract, and Thompson said the closing is contingent on issuance of permits.
"We're halfway through the approvals. We don't know who our tenants are. We've got a lot of work to do," Thompson said.
