New stores to open in former shopping center
September 27, 2013 by James
The Equity Investment Group recently announced that it has plans to redevelop the Midway Shopping Center in Largo with TJ Maxx, LA Fitness, and Dollar Tree establishments, as well as a Wawa convenience store and gas station nearby. No doubt the Investment Group is using flyer printing to let the community become aware of this new development.
The Wawa is planned to be 6,119 square feet in size and also have gas pumps. A pond would also be included on the property for water retention purposes. A traffic study for the area and the intersection specifically where the Wawa will be located are currently being finalized. A great deal of change is expected to happen to that intersection in the next couple of years.
According to the executive vice president for the Equity Investment Group, Bob Sutton, the former Publix building in the shopping center will be demolished, creating new space for LA Fitness. There will also be changes to the façade of the rest of the building. This construction is expected to begin in the fall.
In the southeast corner will be a Walmart Supercenter in the former location of the Kmart. Construction of this store has a start date in November.
LA Fitness, meanwhile, is planned to be open in early 2014 and TJ Maxx by the spring.
