Lake Nona area to get new grocer, restaurant and more

Emerson International Inc. wants to build a new retail center in southeast near .

The Altamonte Springs-based development firm is seeking approval from the Orange County development review committee on April 11 to build a 40,600-square-foot retail center in the Eagle Creek community. The $6 million-$8 million commercial center would be built on 8.29 acres of undeveloped land at 13615 Narcoossee Road.

The project will include:

  • A 21,900-square-foot grocery store
  • A 5,000-square-foot restaurant

Civil engineering firm VHB and C4 Architecture are working on the retail project. A new shopping center brings with it opportunities for companies, vendors and people looking for jobs, as well as retailers that want a presence near Lake Nona.

The overall 67,500-square-foot lot is part of the mixed-used Eagle Creek community that fronts Narcoossee Road.

The community has The Sanctuary at Eagle Creek, a 282-unit apartment complex, and townhomes dubbed the Curzon Place Golf Villas, developed by Emerson International.
