SEMINOLE – In recent weeks, there’s been a flurry of activity at Seminole City Center, the new retail development under construction at the intersection of 113th Street and Park Boulevard, the site of the former Seminole Mall.

New structures are going up quickly, said Roger Edelman, Seminole City Councilor and chair of the Seminole Chamber of Commerce. Many tenants were waiting for Studio Movie Grill, an upscale theater, to confirm its spot as the anchor tenant before fully committing to the project over the past six months, he added.

“Once [Studio Movie Grill] got announced, a lot of places got going,” he said. “A lot of places were hanging out, waiting for them. But now they’ve jumped in, and want to get everything up and going.”

As of March 14, certificates of occupancy have been issued to both BurgerFi and Chipotle, said Mark Ely, the city’s community development director.

BurgerFi is set to open Monday, April 3, while Chipotle will open Monday, April 10.

A building permit has also been issued for Building P-4, which is referred to as Village Retail. Ely said the city does not know which tenant is slated for that location.

Meanwhile, Petco held its grand opening March 4, while Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spot had its soft opening March 10. Both businesses were issued their certificates of occupancy in February. Edelman said Hand & Stone will hold a grand opening sometime in April.

Miller’s Ale House is also coming down the pike, he said, with a tentative opening of Sunday, April 9.

The building permit for Applebee’s and the interior buildout permit for Panda Express were issued last month.

Many tenants he’s spoken with are excited to be a part of the Seminole City Center, Edelman said.

“They all want to get in there and get going for the summer and fall,” he said. “That’s a big draw for them.”

He also expects shoppers, whether they’re Seminole residents or visitors to the area, will be pleased with the City Center, even if they have reservations.

“Once people see what it’s going to look like and what’s going in, they’re going to be excited,” Edelman said. “It’s not the old mall, but people are going to love it. It’s going to be really incredible.”

With the mix of restaurants moving into the retail hub, including Miller’s Ale House, Irish 31 and the Lucky Dill, he expects the development “to draw a lot of people.”
