A fellow business, The Spa, has agreed to honor gift certificates from the Beauty Spot under certain conditions. The Spa, located at 2626 Edgewater Drive, will honor certificates up to $200 which may be used toward purchasing a membership or for services. The certificates will not be accepted for monthly specials, discounts or products. As we reported back in November, Rethink the Princeton agreed to withdraw its lawsuit against the City of Orlando and the developer of The Princeton, Pollack Shores. This paves the way for The Princeton to become a reality on the “island” in the heart of College Park. Anthony Everett, Director of Central Florida for Pollack Shores, told the College Park Paper it would take six to nine months to ramp up construction on the project. That puts it into the third quarter of 2016 before bulldozers would be expected to begin demolition of the properties on the island. Once demolition is complete, Everett said that the five-story parking garage will be constructed first. This will provide parking for the various workers who will need to be at the site on a daily basis. Check back for updates as they become available.
