Walt Disney World's new Flamingo Crossings Town Center project in Orange County is adding more retail and dining options, which will mean hundreds of jobs for the area.
The theme park recently announced nine more tenants lined up for the 200,000-square-foot retail hub. The center is expected to be anchored by a Target store, reports the Orlando Business Journal, as well as various nearby hotels.
The new tenants are: Wendys, Five Below, Domino's, Ellie Lou’s Brews & BBQ, Firehouse Sub, Persimmon Hollow Brewing Co., Pieology Pizzeria, Gyu-Kaku Japanese BBQ, and a UPS store.
"These brands will join a stellar lineup of previously announced shops and restaurants including Target, which will serve as the primary anchor, PDQ, Five Guys, Ben & Jerry’s and Dunkin’. Walgreens is also currently under construction on an outparcel," said Disney, via a release.
A timeline for the new shops was not included, but many other amenities — including the Target — have been slated to be done by 2021, based on past reports, says OBJ. The development will be home to several hotels — totaling about 1,750 rooms — that are completed or under development, including SpringHill Suites by Marriott and TownePlace Suites by Marriott, which are both open and operating. Four additional resorts are under construction, including Fairfield and Residence Inn by Marriott, and Homewood Suites and Home2 Suites by Hilton. These properties are expected to be operating by next year. Hotels under development include Hampton by Hilton scheduled to be completed later in 2021.
The new development will help create more jobs for the region and more amenities for the millions of tourists that visit each year.
