Revitalization of Disston Plaza Announced
The Sembler Company, a St. Petersburg, FL- based shopping center developer for over fifty years, announces the revitalization of Disston Plaza, a 123,000 square foot center anchored by Publix Supermarkets, located at 3501 49th Street North in St. Petersburg.
Publix will close during construction, while the rest of the plaza will remain open. Part of the scope of the redevelopment includes tearing down the existing 40,000 square foot Publix and replacing it with new a 45,600 SF store.
Many upgrades are planned for the center, including new lighting, new landscaping, and improvements to the parking and pedestrian areas. Additionally, a new traffic signal on 49th Street is being constructed in front of the center. There will also be a section of road widening from 38th Avenue to just south of the Disston Plaza.
“The shopping center market in this region is very healthy right now, and poised for growth,” said Josh Beyer, Sembler’s Senior Vice President of Development. “Improving the Publix offering and upgrading the entire center will enhance the customer experience for all of our tenants.”
The revitalization of Disston Plaza will be completed by Fall 2018.
