Significantly more retail, apartments coming to Daytona’s LPGA area in 2021

DAYTONA BEACH — When Cindy Ferrera moved her business to the new Latitude Landings shopping center in late 2019, it only took five minutes to drive to the nearby Tanger Outlets on the other side of Interstate 95.

“It now takes me 15 minutes to get there at lunchtime and it’s not even a mile away,” said the State Farm Insurance agent. Ferrera said it’s an astonishing indicator of how fast Daytona Beach’s LPGA area has grown in the past year despite the coronavirus pandemic.

That growth includes hundreds of new homes at the Jimmy Buffett-themed Latitude Margaritaville 55-and-older community next door, several new luxury apartment complexes and more new shops and restaurants, both at Latitude Landings as well as at Tomoka Town Center where Tanger Outlets is located.

Development is not going to slow in the LPGA area in 2021.

The New Year will see growth there accelerate even faster with a new 21-acre shopping center called the Shoppes at Williamson Crossing set to open across the street from Tomoka Town Center.

Two more shopping areas are poised to break ground in 2021: the Cornerstone Exchange retail center planned behind Cornerstone Office Park on the southwest corner of LPGA and Williamson boulevards; and the Tymber Creek Village development planned across the street from Latitude Landings.

All told, the three new shopping centers could bring nearly a half-million square feet of additional retail stores, restaurants and service businesses to the LPGA area.

Daytona’s LPGA area getting more stores, including ABC liquors, restaurants

An ABC liquor store, three restaurants, Goodwill, Great Clips and ExtraSpace Storage are coming soon to Daytona’s growing LPGA Boulevard commercial corridor. They are part of a planned retail center called Shoppes at Williamson Crossing set to be built behind the RaceTrac gas station on the corner of LPGA and Williamson.

DAYTONA BEACH — An ABC liquor store, three restaurants, Goodwill and ExtraSpace Storage are coming soon to Daytona’s growing LPGA Boulevard commercial corridor.

They are part of a planned retail center called Shoppes at Williamson Crossing.

The center is set to be built behind the RaceTrac gas station on the corner of LPGA and Williamson boulevards.

Orlando-based Unicorp National Developments Inc. recently posted a site map on its website listing the aforementioned tenants. The site map includes the retailers’ logos.

Other tenants coming to Shoppes at Williamson Crossing include Burger King and two other yet-to-be-announced restaurants, a Great Clips hair salon and an AT&T store.

“We’re doing site work right now and should begin vertical construction in 120 days,” said Unicorp President Chuck Whittal.

“The first tenants should open 11 to 12 months from now.”

Whittal’s company also plans to begin construction of two nearby luxury apartment complexes in the coming months.

One is a 346-unit complex called The Ellis which is planned just north of the northwest corner of Clyde Morris and LPGA boulevards.

The other is a planned 223-unit apartment complex called The Edison which will be built on the southwest corner of Clyde Morris and LPGA.

Both apartment complexes are expected to welcome their first residents in early to mid-2021.

Unicorp acquired the 37-acre site behind RaceTrac for its planned Shoppes at Williamson Crossing from Consolidated-Tomoka Land Co. in 2018.

The planned 100,000-square-foot project was originally going to be called the Shoppes at Williamson Crossing.

The shopping center will include two retail buildings with storefront spaces for multiple tenants.

Justin Greider, senior vice president/retail lead for commercial real estate brokerage JLL in Orlando, said Shoppes at Williamson Crossing should do well.

“When you look at those kinds of tenants, they’re going to do a great job of serving the new residential developments that are being built on that corridor, right now,” he said.
