The outlet mall's announced anchor is Saks "Off 5th" outlet shop. As many as 110 retailers are anticipated. Other Simon malls include chains such as Nike, J. Crew and Banana Republic. The approximately 440,000-square-foot mall will be contemporary and "Key West" in design with palm trees and a fountain, according to a company news release.

Ohio-based developer Richard E. Jacobs Group is planning to open a Costco membership warehouse at Cypress Creek Town Center. Additional tenant announcements are anticipated in early 2015.

Tampa-based developer Sierra Properties owns about 170 acres of town center property, located north and south of State Road 56. Retail, offices, hotels and multifamily residences are being planned.
