SUNRISE, Fla., June 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Simon, a global leader in retail real estate, today announced plans to yet again expand the renowned value, outlet and entertainment center, Sawgrass Mills, by adding a full-price component, Town Center at Sawgrass.
Sawgrass Mills is the largest and most productive retail project in the State of Florida. Visited last year by tourists from over 100 countries, it is also Florida's second largest tourist attraction.
The open air Colonnade at Sawgrass, an unequaled collection of designer outlets at Sawgrass Mills, is in the process of being expanded for the third time and will be completed in March of 2016. The Oasis at Sawgrass, the dining, entertainment and retail open air component at Sawgrass Mills, will be undergoing a massive upgrade in 2016. Together with the enclosed portion of Sawgrass with hundreds of additional retailers and food offerings, Sawgrass Mills is the most dynamic retail real estate venue in all of Florida.
Both consumers and retailers requested that Sawgrass Mills create a third open air component to provide a venue for full price shopping. Town Center at Sawgrass will provide that opportunity with a world class selection of retailers and restaurants and will be centered on an inviting plaza ideal for community gatherings and events.
Town Center at Sawgrass will be easily accessible from both Flamingo and Sunrise Boulevards and will be flanked by four new sit-down restaurants and a new parking deck able to accommodate 2,000 vehicles. At Town Center at Sawgrass, both the pedestrian and vehicular circulation patterns will be fully integrated into the Sawgrass Mills complex.
When complete in the fall of 2018, Town Center at Sawgrass will add approximately 25 new full-price retailers in 118,000 square feet of space. Construction on what is certain to be another Simon South Florida retail landmark is slated to begin in early 2017.
