Just a mile from the brand-new Horizon High School, a new shopping center in Horizon West’s Village F is well underway — and developer Unicorp will soon start handing over the reins to its tenants.
Located at the corner of Seidel Road and Seton Creek Boulevard, The Mark at Horizon West shopping center has been in the works for a couple of years now. It’s one of many projects that Unicorp has developed in the area over the years. Unicorp also developed the Westside Shoppes in Horizon West’s Lakeside Village, the ICON Park Orlando complex and O-Town West in Southwest Orange County.
“The Mark offers a versatile retail neighborhood center encompassing 21 acres in Winter Garden,” according to Unicorp staff. “This ideal property is situated just 5 miles from Disney’s Magic Kingdom and experiences traffic from the 10,000 residential units within 1 mile and 40,000 residential units within 3 miles.”
The Mark comprises more than 112,000 square feet of retail and restaurants on property that once belonged to the Walt Disney World Company, according to Chuck Whittall, president of Unicorp.
The Mark includes 10 buildings or pads ranging in size from the smallest at 2,525 square feet to the largest — a multi-story restaurant building with 14,200 square feet on the first floor, 6,200 square feet on the second floor and a 5,000-square-foot enclosed rooftop.
That building will be home to one of the highlights for the shopping center — New York Beer Project — a destination brewery that currently operates locations in Lockport and Victor, New York. The brewery took over the building that once was supposed to house organic grocer Earth Fare. Unicorp was scheduled to turn over the shell of the building to New York Beer Project on June 15. It’s estimated the brewery will be completed in mid-March 2022.
Along with New York Beer Project, there are several other new businesses filling out the shopping center. Most tenant turnover is scheduled to take place throughout the summer and into fall, although tenants will still need time to complete buildout before they can open.
Those businesses include 7-Eleven, AT&T, AdventHealth Centra Care, Heartland Dental, Horizon West Barber Shop, Huey Magoo’s, Jeremiah’s Italian Ice, Kenpo Karate Chophouse, Papa John’s Pizza, PCG Artisanal Burgers, Piccolinos Haircuts, Starbucks, The Learning Experience, Top Star Surfaces, Urban Cocoon Nail Salon, Walgreens and Winter Garden Liquors.
Although much of the retail and restaurant space has been leased, there still are five vacancies, according to The Mark’s most recent leasing information.
