First Major Retail Tenants Announced for SunsetWalk at Margaritaville Resort Orlando
Margaritaville Resort Orlando is coming to life! Encore Capital Management has announced the first major retailers to join the shopping, dining and entertainment portion of the project. SunsetWalk at Margaritaville Resort Orlando (formerly Shoppes at Rolling Oaks) will be a true entertainment destination that anchors the $750 million, 300-acre development offering the 187-room Margaritaville hotel, 900 resort rental homes, 300 timeshare units and a 12-acre, multi-million-dollar water park. The project, which sits on 40 acres of lagoons and lakes, is currently under construction near U.S. Highway 192 and State Road 429 in Osceola County, across the street from Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
The largest anchor tenant to join the project is Studio Movie Grill, a state-of-the-art theater that will occupy 40,000 square feet with 12 screens and more than 1,000 luxury recliners. Studio Movie Grill (“SMG”) offers an immersive entertainment venue where moviegoers can socialize and connect before and after the film in a warm and inviting lobby and enjoy an unparalleled movie experience with American Grill food and premium beverage service directly to their luxury recliner at anytime during the show.
Another large anchor tenant is GameTime, Florida’s premier family entertainment center. Complete with a modern restaurant and sports bar, GameTime offers a huge selection of video arcade games, simulators, prize machines and over 60 TVs for prime viewing of sporting events. GameTime will occupy 24,000 square feet and will be one of the most active, family destinations in town.
World famous country group, Rascal Flatts, will be opening a contemporary dining restaurant with full-service bar, live entertainment, and retail space. Flatts will showcase some of America’s favorite cuisines along with some of the bands favorite foods while guests enjoy Rascal Flatts 29 Top 10 Hits and other live local country music.
Another restaurant associated with famous musicians Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley will have a presence at Sunset Walk. Rock & Brews features a scratch kitchen, 100s of craft beers on tap and by the bottle, and rock music. The restaurant atmosphere is multifaceted consisting of televisions playing music videos, rock & roll art, dog friendly patios with fire pits, couches, and backyard games. Rock & Brews appeals to all age groups and people from all walks of life.
Our goal was to create a true entertainment destination in the heart of the Margaritaville Resort Orlando, and we knew that we had to bring in new, unique, family-centric tenants to accomplish this. We will be able to offer tourists and locals nearly 200,000 square feet of pedestrian-friendly shopping, more than 15 food and beverage options, green space and a concert pavilion for live music, children’s entertainment area and now a state-of the-art move theater. SunsetWalk at Margaritaville Resort Orlando is becoming a can’t-miss Orlando destination.
Other confirmed tenants include: Skechers, Bahama Bucks, Avalon Day Spa, Café Rio, Cold Stone Creamery, Paradise Spirits and Wine, BurgerFi and others in various stages of lease negotiations.
With a planned Phase 1 opening in November of 2018, retail leasing is filling up quickly, but there are still a few select spots left for interested retail or restaurant partners.
Located along U.S. 192, the project is just southwest of Walt Disney World and will provide a huge economic boost to the area.
