Orlando developer to bring retail, restaurants, residential to already hot LPGA Boulevard

DAYTONA BEACH — The heat just got cranked higher for one of Daytona Beach’s hottest corridors for commercial development.

Orlando-based Unicorp National Developments announced plans to develop a 100,000 square feet of retail shops and restaurants on the south side of LPGA Boulevard between Williamson and Clyde Morris boulevards.

The planned 37-acre Williamson Crossing shopping center will be developed next to the RaceTrac convenience store/gas station that opened late last year on the corner of LPGA and Williamson.

The developer also plans to add a 101-acre residential development just north of LPGA Boulevard that will also stretch from Williamson to Clyde Morris.

Its Tomoka Village project will include 233 new homes and 340 apartment units.

Chuck Whittall, president of Unicorp, said his company hopes to break ground on both projects in March 2019 with the goal of the first homes, apartments, retail shops and restaurants completed by early 2020.

“We wanted to take advantage of the growth that was happening in the area,” said Whittall.

Unicorp joins a growing number of developers with projects either underway or planned along the increasingly busy stretch of LPGA Boulevard between Interstate 95 and Clyde Morris.
