ORLANDO, Fla. - The owners of Lake Buena Vista Factory Stores announced plans to expand their existing outlet mall by 110,000 square feet. All new space would be leasable.
The center's ownership anticipates breaking ground later this year and the grand opening to be summer of 2016, right around the outlet center's 20th anniversary.
Ownership estimates the expansion will create around 225 new jobs and will increase the outlet center by nearly 50 percent.
All stores will remain fully operational during the expansion.
Sutton Properties President Sam Sutton says he hopes the expansion will house both nationally-popular brands as well as new to the market international stores and restaurants.
He hopes to make this "a winning proposition for both visitors and loyal local resident customer base".
