Aiming to capitalize on the popularity of its Dr. Phillips-area Trader Joe's, Unicorp National Developments has neighboring land under contract to build extra parking, and has yet to choose a contractor for what estimates as a $500,000 project, CEO Chuck Whittall told GrowthSpotter.
Located at 8323 W. Sand Lake Road, Unicorp's Parkside retail center features 17,121 square feet of gross area under roof. The space is occupied by Greater Orlando's second Trader Joe's grocery store (which opened in April 2015), along with Slate restaurant.
That center currently has just over 100 parking spaces. Unicorp is proposing a new parking deck with 56 more spaces, which would occupy the nearest third of a 2.65-acre parcel directly north, along Sandpoint Boulevard.
