According to internet sources, tenants of Crossroads of Lake Buena Vista have been told that the shopping center will be permanently closing due to an expansion of Interstate 4. The popular shopping and dining spot is located just outside of the Walt Disney World Resort on S.R. 535. Tenants have been told they have 18 months to close, and construction is expected to begin in 2020.
Tenants of Crossroads of Lake Buena Vista include Gooding’s supermarket, Pirate’s Cove Mini Golf, Buffalo Wild Wings, McDonald’s, Taco Bell, T.G.I. Fridays, Tom and Chee, and more.
The Florida Department of Transportation will be using much of the 29-acres for retention ponds.
