"Pretty much all of the buildings in Phase 1 are built and we'll be delivering all of them to our tenants by Christmas 2018," President Peter Bergner told GrowthSpotter. That includes a new Lucky's Market, which has leased the end-space on the main building anchored by Marshall's, Ross and Burlington.
Lucky's will be joined by Duck Donuts, which entered the Orlando market at O'Connor Capital's Crosslands in Kissimmee. It will open its second location in Vineland Pointe.
MOD Pizza, known for its individually made or artisan-style pizzas, will open its first Orlando store in the next month at Vineland Pointe, Bergner said. The brand was developed by the founders of Seattle Coffee Co.
BBX, a Fort Lauderdale-based diversified real estate and time-share company, holds the Florida MOD franchise rights. The company said it intends to open 10 to 12 stores in Florida this year and up to 60 in the next five years.
Bergner confirmed that the developer asked its team from Harris Civil and Eleven18 Architecture to redesign Phases 2 and 3 of the project to accommodate a different tenant mix, including a 65,000-square-foot big box store in Phase 2. Building elevations filed with the new Development Plan indicate the user is Target.
Lucky Strike bowling alley dropped out of the project, he said. And O'Connor shifted the 10-screen movie theater to Phase 3, where it will anchor that section of the center, along with a 10,000-square-foot Cheesecake Factory.
Bergner said general contractor Williams Company would build those phases concurrently, and both would be slated for delivery by Christmas 2019.
