The pavilion will feature 16 eateries which include several healthy fare options and new-to-market dining choices. Outlets will be available for customers to charge their electronic devices.

A total of 105,000 square feet will be used for the redevelopment.

"The new food pavilion and retail area will be unlike anything in the market," said Brian Hanson, general manager of Florida Mall. "The design of the space will create a true gathering place for shoppers and area office workers alike."

Michael Kors, Bose, Original Penguin, Polaroid Fotobar, The Art of Shaving, Wasabi Sushi and Pinkberry were all new additions to the mall in 2013, and the highly anticipated American Girl store will open Fall 2014.

In Spring, stores like Call It Spring and Zingara will open, and Zara will expand its store to 30,000 square feet.

The new food pavilion is set to open in Spring 2015.
