Health food development
The land was purchased from Orlando Health, with plans for Earth Fare being a high quality gateway development. The project centers around community wellness, which is the focus for both Earth Fare and Orlando Health.
In addition to the grocery and apartments, Crescent Lucerne is expected to have about 7,000 square feet of retail.
