Ocala to try again for City Shops & Walk

After losing ~$2.5 million on failed development called “City Shops & Walk” by¬†bankrupt developer Jorge Gutman, Ocala City Council decided to try again.¬† It will be soliciting proposals for the next 6 months.

The original proposal called for 40,000 square feet of retail & restaurants on the site near Fort King Street.

With Marion County unemployment at 14%, any new development or job opportunities is welcome.
