Development along State Road 56 in Wesley Chapel continues to spread as more home buyers and businesses are drawn to the desirable Wiregrass Ranch region. The boom is spurred on by new luxury housing, trendy restaurants and shops, and access to cutting-edge medical care that the area has to offer.
Prospective residents are drawn to Wiregrass Ranch by the available luxury homes being built in communities like Estancia at Wiregrass, which boasts twenty-four original home designs, both waterfront and woodland conservation views, and an upscale community clubhouse. Estancia offers a contemporary lifestyle in the booming area of Wesley Chapel that appeals to many home owners.
Wiregrass Ranch has also attracted the attention of many retail developers, the new outlet mall just opened and there are plans to expand the Wiregrass Mall by adding new restaurants, shops, and even a specialty grocery store. Another addition will be a large and luxurious movie theater with over a thousand seats, allowing residents access to entertainment without having to travel to other areas. Nearby Tampa Premium Outlets will also be growing as they add Nike, Ralph Lauren, and Saks Fifth Avenue to their list of select retail shops.
Dining options will also be improving with new restaurants coming to Wiregrass Ranch. The much sought after Ford’s Garage will be coming to Wesley Chapel, and diners will no longer have to travel to Brandon to get the chance to enjoy a car-themed décor while they indulge in the gourmet burgers and craft beer that the restaurant has to offer.
Residents will also benefit from improved commute times with the proposed “Vision 54/56” improvements that will include overpasses to cut down on congestion at intersections, more public transportation options, and interstate express lanes. These improvements will keep traffic moving smoothly on both State Road 54 and State Road 56 while providing easier access to all that the Wiregrass Ranch area has to offer.
Another draw to the growing region nestled between Wesley Chapel and State Road 56 is the Center Ice Skating Arena, which will bring a state-of-the-art ice skating facility to Wiregrass Ranch. Made possible by the support of the Florida Hospital, Center Ice boasts four full-sized ice skating rinks and one kid-sized rink, and will cater to both professional ice skaters like hockey players and figure skaters, as well as families looking to get out and have some fun.
Health care options are also on the rise, as Florida Hospital Wesley Chapel has begun a large facilities expansion that will double the currently available number of operating, emergency, and patient rooms on its state-of-the-art campus. Florida Hospital has stated that they have dedicated themselves to this project in response to the medical needs of the growing community, and in order to match the growth rate of the Wiregrass Ranch area.
With the number of planned expansions and additions, there is no doubt that this desirable part of the Tampa Bay region will continue to thrive with the influx of new businesses, homes, and residents.
