Seminole Towne Center’s revitalization plan makes headway as family entertainment center opens

The ribbon-cutting at Elev8 Fun, an amusement center at Sanford’s Mall, is more than the Celebration of a new family Amusement business. It’s the first chapter in a new story at the mall. “The support in the community has been outstanding,” Keith Baldwin said. Elev8 offers Bowling, clip and climb, a ropes course and tons of games. But the go-kart track is the centerpiece. “A lot of people don’t want to travel down to I-Drive for this type of entertainment, so everyone who comes in, from moms and dads to little ones, everyone’s racing,” Baldwin said. The opening of this entertainment complex is just a first step, according to the city of Sanford. They have big plans for the future of the Seminole Towne Center. “We think it’s a great first step in re-imagining the mall and its total footprint,” Tomford’s director of economic development at Sanford said. Development rules have been amended to allow various things. The hotel, perhaps, or apartments. The mall can offer things in addition to retail. “What we want the mall to be something where people come to experience, maybe they even work here in an office environment,” Tomerlin said. “There’s not one hotel from I-4 to downtown Orlando is 417, “Kevin Hipes, who manages the Oviedo Mall, said. Hipes says the Oviedo Mall also has plans to add a hotel and apartments. Putting potential customers steps away. “This makes perfect sense for a dense urban center, and of course, it will automatically turn the mall around which everybody in this town wants,” Hipes said. In Orlando, Fashion Square Mall also believes in reinvention. Proposals include an outdoor plaza with commercial space, as well as a hotel and apartments on site. Survival of those willing to change.
