MALL UPDATE! It’s on! The Miracle City Mall redevelopment is steadily moving forward and much work (and financial investment) has been going on behind the scenes as we count down to demolition of the Miracle City Mall!
The City of Titusville Board of Adjustments and Appeals recently approved several variances necessary to overcome certain outdated city codes that were not in unison with the urban village zoning that this project will provide. This is the first step in several approvals needed. We offer a BIG RENAISSANCE THANK YOU to the BAA members who approved this request unanimously and also the two other requests on the agenda related to economic growth and redevelopment in Titusville: new signage at Parrish Medical’s Urgent Care Center at the Target Plaza and variances for the old Randolph Inn Motel, which has been purchased and plans are to convert it to 48 residential apartments. If you’d like to read the nitty gritty, here’s a link to the agenda from the recent meeting: http://www.titusville.com/Files/05-28-14.pdf Thank you also to the City of Titusville staff members who made very thorough presentations and were spot-on with answers for the BAA. Great teamwork!
As they continue to complete a great line up of retailers and restaurants, AG Developers recently attended (and had great success!) at the International Conference of Shopping Centers in Las Vegas. With over 32,000 attendees and 1,000 exhibitors, the ICSC is the largest industry convention, making it an unparalleled opportunity to personally meet with national tenants. The developers have also been working hard on the site plans and architectural drawings (see images). Although no names have been released at this time for our new Towne Centre, we are all looking forward to this project and what it means to our community.
MALL UPDATE! Everything is moving forward! AG Development has submitted a project schedule that has a contract closing date in June (with a couple of back up dates that require further cash deposits). Demolition will be happening before the… end of this year, possibly as soon as October! We’ve all be holding our breath – it’s almost time to exhale! The schedule includes asbestos removal, site engineering, permitting, demo and site work, architectural design, general contractor bids, vertical construction and marketing plans! We want Miracle City Towne Centre!
