More than 100 acres of greenspace in Holley by the Sea must undergo environmental reclamation as specified by state and federal authorities before the new Publix-anchored Tiger Point Pavilion can be built.
Craig Martin, owner of Wetland Services in Pensacola, the developer’s consultant on the project, said he’s working on a preservation and “enhancement” plan for the property to be submitted to the Army Corps of Engineers within a few days.
Until the approval of that plan, the shopping center’s developer, IRC-MAB Tiger Point, LLC, won’t close on its purchase of the 8 acres slated for the 45,000-square-foot Publix and an accompanying 19,000 square feet of other retail space.
The shopping center had been scheduled to break ground in mid-2016 and be completed next year.
The developer of the planned Publix-anchored shopping center in Tiger Point is IRC-MAB Tiger Point LLC, which is an entity created by a joint venture of MAB Corp. of Australia and IRC Retail Centers based in Chicago. A Navarre Press article on June 23 incorrectly reported the developer’s identity.
