Adjacent to the Isleworth Golf & Country Club, The Grove is anchored by a Publix, with local boutique shops and restaurants centered around a common green area. Main tenants include LA Fitness, Walgreens and multiple banks.
The latest phase of development at The Grove focuses on the 1.67-acre Parcel 4, one of the last undeveloped tracts within the mixed-use complex. That parcel lies on the property's hard corner, southwest of the intersection of Conroy Windermere and S. Apopka Vineland roads.
Tavistock's Development Plan (DP) submittal requests to build a two-story building with 15,000 square feet of commercial, retail or dining uses on the first floor, and 16,500 square feet of professional office on the second floor. The cumulative square footage is 31,500.
Parcel 4 is the last portion of The Grove that Tavistock owns, after selling the bulk of the shopping center in September 2014 to Miami Beach-based REIT Equity One Inc. for $13 million.
The project's Development Plan will be heard on May 25 by Orange County's Development Review Committee.
"Our plan for that corner is to go through the process, we've been working with the county over past few months on architecture," Robert L. Thompson, vice president of Tavistock, told GrowthSpotter on Thursday morning. "It's an important piece of property for Orange County and for ourselves. Our intent is to continue to seek the community's involvement and input. Once we're past that step, that's when we start to look at what kind of place will be created."
