Description

An architectural plot plan showing the location of various out parcels and parking facilities surrounding the Florida Mall property. The plan also shows the names of the five department stores that made up the original mall configuration: Sears, J.C. Penney, Robinson's, Belk-Lindsey, and Jordan Marsh. The 13-story, Crown Plaza Hotel, located within the mall, is also named in the plot plan.

The Florida Mall was designed and constructed by the Edward J. DeBartolo Corporation. The DeBartolo Corporation was founded by Edward J. DeBartolo Sr. in 1944. Edward J. DeBartolo Jr., joined his father's business and together they became the king's of the shopping mall. By the late 1980s, the DeBartolo Corporation had constructed fifty one shopping malls, including twenty one in Florida. The Florida Mall, located on the corner of Sand Lake Road and Orange Blossom Trail, was designed to appeal to Central Florida's large tourist economy. Originally the mall sat on 250 acres, contained over 1.3 million square feet of shopping space and featured over 160 stores.
