Pet Friendly Reminders Hi Everyone!

I know that a lot of us here at Live Oak Preserve love our pets! We would consider them as a part of our family! Please be kind and an outstanding neighbor by cleaning up after your pets and keeping them on a leash. It is also important to maintain control and follow all safety precautions while the pet is on or near the owner’s property as well as residential neighborhoods in general. This helps keep children, adults, and even other animals, including your pets, safe.

Do you have a Clubhouse question? Please contact Debbie Leone, Amenities Center Director or Alexa Vanek, Assistant Clubhouse Manager at (813) 994-0591

forget about really connecting,” Mark Gold, of MGold Properties said. “I’m going to build the Downtown of Wesley Chapel at the Grove. It will become a central place for families to enjoy a unique, very relaxed form of entertainment that can be enjoyed both indoors and outdoors.” “Let’s make the dream come true.” Gold believes that restaurants, services and family entertainment for children and their families will draw people together. “Our 685,000 square-foot shopping center hosts national tenants Dick’s Sporting Goods, Bed Bath & Beyond, and Ross, along with many more who are completing over 15% - 25% above the national average in sales. The Grove has 300 acres and with authorization to build 1.3 million square feet.” The former office park buildings at The Grove have become The Village, a 40,000 square-foot complex that Gold said he specifically designed for fun. Restaurants, music and entertainment will inhabit the downstairs space and upstairs will deliver more service oriented retail such as yoga, Pilates, martial arts and professional offices. Gold noted, “The interest has been tremendous. In only two months, I’ve leased every single space in The Village, so we are fully leased already.” Micro-brewery Double Branch Artisanal Ales, Cuban Restaurant, Best New York Pizza, Bistro Café, F 45 Fitness, Brooklyn Water Bagels, King of The Coop Chicken Restaurant, Treble Makers, a dueling piano bar, and

The Kilted Axe, a veteran-owned and operated indoor axe throwing range are all set to open shortly. Landscaping and walkways will bring all of the entertainment areas together into one entertainment venue. In the large grassy area facing I-75 between the Village and Outback Restaurant, a huge container park and outdoor entertainment and recreation area will be constructed over the next four to five months. “The Container Park concept is all about doing something very different and unique. It’s about recycling and reusing things. Former semi-truck trailers measuring 40-feet long will be used to develop a park

for weekends and events, that parking is closed and the area becomes a pedestrianfriendly walkable space,” Gold said. “I do the Container Park specifically to support local businesses. If you have a dream to open a small shop, you can do it here because it’s not expensive. The 40-foot retail units now rent for only $1500 a month, with most users taking 2 to 4 containers. This really encourages small, unique businesses to participate. I advertised the Container Park for just two days and I rented close to 80% of the space,” he said. The area will host 27-30 restaurants that will reside within the park. They will offer unique tastes for

and retail area. Overall, retail is moving to a smaller concept on square footage – making things smaller, more efficient & more unique,” he said. Our Container Park design is the only one of its kind and will be the largest in the world,” Gold explained. “A typical container layout is designed in tight clusters with parking usually at a distance from the shops, so you have to park and walk to the shopping area, making it more of a weekend strolling type of thing than everyday use retail space. Our design has parking spaces directly in front of the storefronts Monday through Friday, then

every palate from every cuisine including Cuban, Columbian, Italian, Asian and many more. “We have approximately 20% left to rent in the park and we are looking for unique concepts pertaining to retail, food or service. Additionally, offices are more than welcome.” “Surrounding the Container Park will be a huge outdoor entertainment area boasting a music amphitheater, a dog park, and kids’ playground – basically everything families and kids could want. This area really needs this. We’ll have events every week such as Family Night on Wednesdays, Ladies’ Night on

Mondays and live music on the weekends. We’re even going to do competitions, sort of like a TV show, and we’ll vote for the best singer, best wall mural and best comedian, with big prizes,” Gold noted. “Every few months, we’ll host a big event with a big name act. The idea is to bring every kind of entertainment to The Grove, so people won’t have to drive to Tampa to enjoy downtown style events. The idea is to bring Tampa to Wesley Chapel because this area is really missing this and we’re going to create a one-of-a-kind entertainment and tourist destination for the people in this community. I just imagine the sound of children laughing and having fun, families talking and listening to music and enjoying good food and drinks,” Gold mused. “My company is completely unique in that it is our management, our design, our landscaping and our security. Everything from start to finish is our brand. Each property is my baby. Everything stays in place after the property is completed so that the feel and the quality remains exactly the same. My people stay to run the show and this is why all of my properties are always leased at 90% or higher. There are no vacancy issues. It’s really all about the personal touch that we deliver.” “Wesley Chapel is a very unique community. The people here are super - like a big family - everybody hugs everybody. I love it here and I plan to move my life and my business to this area very soon. I’ve bought a lot of land in this area and I’m going to buy more. My goal is always to build in the fun with things like zip lines, outdoor chess games, trampolines, and skating rinks and much more. I have 1.3 million squarefeet of available space to build out at The Grove,” Gold said. “When I’m done, it’s just going to be…WOW!”
