A new retail strip center is coming to a site on State Road 54, west of Tampa Premium Outlets and the Cypress Creek Town Center.
Paradise Ventures Inc., is clearing land and installing infrastructure on about 3.5 acres at the northwest corner of State Road 54 and Old Cypress Road. The site is west of Interstate 75, within proximity of Tampa Premium Outlets and the Cypress Creek Town Center.
A conceptual plan filed with the county shows a “strip retail” center of about 18,000 square feet. Two 9,000-square-foot buildings are planned with a 20-foot breezeway between them. An outparcel is proposed as a site for a “quick service” restaurant of about 3,500 square feet. Two outdoor patios also are shown.
A company representative could not be reached for comment.
Paradise Ventures, based in Safety Harbor, previously developed the Shoppes at Terra Bella, also along State Road 54, east of Livingston Road.
No information is available on potential tenants at Shoppes at Cypress Creek. But, tenants at Terra Bella include national chains, such as AT & T, Firehouse Subs, and Tropical Smoothie Café.
State Road 54 is among the county’s busiest east/west corridors, making it an attractive development area.
Plans filed by Paradise Ventures cite state traffic counts along the State Road 54 corridor at about 73,000 annual average daily trips. That volume is expected to grow to nearly 100,000 by 2025, according to a county comprehensive transportation plan.
