DEVELOPMENT – A new marketing package has been circulating of the proposed new Tallahassee Outlet Center at Park Place . We have consulted with a source close to the project and provide the following update.
What you will find is a site design that is very reminiscent of the increasingly popular lifestyle shopping centers that seem to be spreading throughout Florida. The facade of the retail spaces utilize a combination of materials and themes that speak to the Tallahassee area such as columns at the entrances to key retail spaces, brick and hardie board.
Design elements are also shown that incorporate squares and stucco along with industrial-styled awnings and horizontal wooden accents to give the center the same diversity of feel that is seen throughout all parts of Florida’s Capital City.

Exactly what stores will be located within the outlet center?
Well, that’s to be determined but you should expect a strong mix of what is typically found at similarly configured outlet centers throughout Florida, brand exclusive stores promoting ongoing markdown sales.
Marketing material notes that this will be positioned as a Regional Outlet and that there are no other outlet centers within 130 miles of this development. Additionally, when completed it will be the only Outlet Mall along I-10 within Florida.

Site Plan of Proposed Park Place Development
The project will have over 1 mile of interstate frontage and 1/2 mile of frontage along Capital Circle NW.
Tallahassee Outlet Center at Park Place will have an immediate impact on the local economy and the residential composition of the City’s northwestern quadrant.
Beyond shopping and dining, other components will include the development of single family homes, apartments, a hotel, office space and entertainment which could include a possible water park or top golf, according to a solid source.
Construction on the apartments is anticipated to begin within the next few months, and developers are currently leasing the retail space for 2019 delivery.
