Lakeland-based Publix Super Markets Inc. updated the timeline for two East Arlington projects, with both anticipated to be completed in the second half of the year.

Harbour Place

Spokeswoman Hannah Herring said April 19 that the Harbour Place Shopping Center store under reconstruction will open between July-September.

“The new store at this location is targeted for the 3rd quarter,” Publix Media Relations Manager Hannah Herring said by email.

The store closed July 15 for the project, which is at least a yearlong reconstruction.

The city issued a permit June 21 for demolition of the almost 55,000-square-foot store at 13170 Atlantic Blvd. Publix bought the shopping center, was built in 1990, in 2022.

On July 7, the city followed up with a permit for HGR Construction Inc. of Altamonte Springs to build a 56,433-square-foot store at a project cost of $7.11 million.

The site is at Hodges and Atlantic boulevards near Queen’s Harbour Yacht & Country Club.

Cobblestone Crossing

The Cobblestone Crossing Publix at 2771 Monument Road will undergo a full remodel starting at the end of May, Herring said.

It will take about three months to complete, which is the end of August or later.

The city issued a permit April 17 for Publix to remodel the store at northeast Monument and McCormick roads.

Publix has anchored the center since both were built in 1986. It demolished the original store and built a new one in 2014.

Elkins Construction LLC  of Jacksonville is the contractor for the $900,000 renovation. Orlando-based Jacobs Architects is the architect.

The work will include adding self-checkout stations while keeping seven staffed checkouts as well as the customer service center. 

The renovation includes new finishes, fixtures and repairs as well as enclosing a loading dock.

The store remains open during the remodel.

The property is near the Hidden Hills Golf Club and across Monument Road from Ed Austin Regional Park.

Trade Consulting International Inc. of Aventura is the property owner.
