Downtown Avalon Park Update


    By Stephanie Hodson


    Downtown Avalon Park is happy to report continued growth and activity.  Avalon Park Group will start construction of a third phase of The Flats at Avalon Park, Town Center III.  The building will break ground on the parcel of land between CVS and Town Park early next quarter. The four story building is planned to have a total of 100,000 square feet of living space, with 95 rental apartments. Unlike the subsequent phases of The Flats, this building will not have retail space on the bottom floor.  The Flats is now accepting.


    Additionally, we are happy to introduce the newest addition to the downtown community, Casa Mofongo Xpress.  The restaurant will occupy 1,769 square feet of retail space in the Town Center II building in Downtown Avalon Park. Casa Mofongo Xpress is a very popular franchise from Puerto Rico.  The new Latin eatery will seat 60 patrons and anticipate opening at the end of March 2013.
