Pointe Orlando to get $32 million makeover
Pointe Orlando already draws crowds with its lineup of top-drawer retailers, restaurants, and IMAX theater. Now owner Brixmor intends to repackage the goods with new storefronts, improved gathering spaces, and a 100-foot passageway to extend first-floor access to more tenants.
The $32 million renovation, which has the stated aim to improve the property’s sense of place, is slated to begin this fall and be completed by the end of 2020.
“Pointe Orlando already generates some of the highest restaurant sales in the country, and this redevelopment will upgrade the center’s appearance and guest experience befitting Orlando’s premier dining and entertainment destination,” said Brixmor VP of leasing Chris Ralph.
The center’s two valet areas will be upgraded with glass overhangs and column up lighting to create a “sense of arrival” for guests pulling up in their limos or Ubers.
In Pointe Orlando’s primary courtyard, a new gathering space will be created by replacing an existing pond with colorful seating, shade structures, and upscaled lighting fixtures.
Pointe Orlando gets steady business from conventioneers attending events at the nearby Orange County Convention Center. Dining and entertainment options include The Oceanaire Seafood Room, B.B. King’s Blues Club, WonderWorks, the Improv Comedy Club, and Orlando’s only Main Event Entertainment.
