Lakeland is the largest city in Polk County, and over the years, it has divided itself into two main parts: North Lakeland and South Lakeland, with the central downtown area in between. For a long time, South Lakeland was the center of development with plenty of shopping, new restaurants sprouting up, and lots of opportunities for business growth. North Lakeland, on the other hand, tended to have more open space, and while there was residential property, there wasn’t a lot of business growth (other than the Lakeland Square Mall, which had lost some of its popularity).
However, recent years have started turning the tide in Lakeland, and now, North Lakeland has turned into a mecca of growth for retail, dining, and a variety of other businesses. New restaurants have moved into the area, and the mall underwent a lot of change, brining in new stores and dining options. Residential neighborhoods are popping up all over, and now, North Lakeland is rivaling its southern counterpart.
Lorio and Associates is proud to offer property throughout Lakeland, and we have available spaces in both the North and South. Currently, we have a great option for those looking to open a business on the North side. We’ve listed three separate retail bays on Daughtery Road, located in a strip mall. These spaces have bathrooms, plenty of parking, and wide open space. Previously a martial arts defense school, the floorpan has little by way of closed off walls, meaning it’s a fresh, clean canvas where your business could make its home.
If you can see yourself in this type of space, and you’re ready to grow your business in North Lakeland, give us a call! We will help you figure out how to make your dream a reality, starting with the location.
