The property owner is in the process of rescinding the DRI, but the project is entitled for another 565,000 square feet of commerical space, as well as 1,991 residential units, 2,600 hotel rooms and 1.4 million square feet of offices.
Officials with Intram declined to comment on Tuesday.
Paul Senft, a retired Polk commissioner who consults for the county, told GrowthSpotter the opening of the Poinciana Parkway last weekend will bring thousands of shoppers from Osceola County to Posner. That makes the retail parcels even more attractive for Intram.
"They would not be going through all of this if they did not already have some restaurants and big box prospects already lined up," he said.
Posner Park is home to a handful of restaurants -- including a Twistee Treat location near the main entrance that is owned by Intram.
Intram bought the rights to Twistee Treat in 2010 and intends to expand nationally, opening 1,000 locations in the iconic ice cream cone-shaped buildings.
