UPDATED: January 24, 2017 4:29 PM — An affiliate of Tavistock Development Company filed plans on Tuesday to develop a grocer-anchored shopping center with a potential hotel directly south of Orlando International Airport, and between hundreds of acres pegged for future residential.
Located at the northwest corner of Lake Nona Boulevard and Boggy Creek Road, the project would serve as intersection frontage for more than 116 acres owned by Tavistock affiliates that lie south of the Central Florida Greeneway (S.R. 417), and make up the Greeneway Park PD/DRI.
Another 106 acres directly north of the 417 are also Tavistock-owned, undeveloped and within the DRI. Voxx International developed the first 8.7-acre portion of that area, opening a new manufacturing facility in January 2015.
The new retail center would likely serve residents of Lennar's Wyndham Lakes community that's still under construction a few miles to the west, Somerset Park to the west, the new Ariel Apartments now under construction, and future growth of Lake Nona's Laureate Park to the east.
Tavistock filed a Development Plan on Tuesday to build 63,229 square feet of retail on 12.09 acres at the intersection, and a Preliminary Subdivision Plan that breaks the land down into a shopping center, four outparcels and a hotel site.
The shopping center layout shows one large grocery store estimated at 46,031 square feet with a drive-thru pharmacy, and a row of up to nine inline retail spaces totaling 17,198 square feet.
The DP outlines four outparcels fronting Boggy Creek Road that would require separate plan filings in the future, and a hotel parcel.
Construction on the shopping center is slated to begin this summer with an opening in late 2018, a company spokeswoman said Tuesday. No tenants or hotel flag have been announced.
Donald W. McIntosh Associates, Inc., is civil engineer on the project, planning and environmental services came via AECOM, Broad and Cassel's Craig Langley provided legal services, and Verlander is the landscape architect.
