Dr. Phillips Charities has torn down the warehouses, namely Amazon Hose and Rubber Co., that formerly stood at the intersection of West Princeton and North Orange Blossom Trail [GMap]. The now vacant land total over 80 acres and sits at the western gateway to College Park, which is prime for development.
We reached out to Kenneth D. Robinson, the President of Dr. Phillips Inc., back in February. Robinson told us that they are still in the early planning stages and are still trying to identify a specific use for the land and that a press announcement would be made the moment they had reached a decision.
Despite the seeming lack of pre-determined plans, Dr. Phillips, Inc., has mentioned to City officials in the past that they had an interest in establishing some sort of mixed-use development there. At the moment though, no permits have been filed or granted other than to construct a fence and tear down the original structures.
Editor’s Note: Rumors of a Super Target moving in are just that, rumors, and we have been unable to find anything to confirm, or deny, them.
