Exciting News About the Old Outlet Mall!

A 160+ acre development is in the hopper!
...The Lake District construction may start in spring 2017


California-based developer Gilad Development and local design firm A2H recently revealed exciting plans for The Lake District, a mixed-use development at the site of the former Lakeland Factory Outlet Mall off Interstate-40 and Canada Road.

Conceptual plans feature a combination of uses such as luxury retail stores, two hotels, restaurants, a farmer's market, office spaces, residences, green space including parks and an untouched preserve area, and more.

“The Lake District will have a huge impact on the city,” said Lakeland City Manager Jim Atkinson. “It will be, by far, the largest development that Lakeland has seen with 160-plus acres of high-scale residential and commercial development.

Atkinson explains that it's not a 20-year phase project. The plan is to take it all down at one time. It’s all going to be done in one phase. They start the formal process tonight of approval by the city.
