Contractors hired at University mall

By

Two Sarasota-based contractors say they have been signed up to work on the Mall at University Town Center:

Advanced Masonry Systems, which says it is Florida’s largest masonry contractor, says it will employ as many as 100 masons and tenders to complete almost a quarter-million units, or concrete blocks, at the mall at I-75 and University Parkway.

Advanced Masonry said it is completing the new Universal Studios Cabana Beach Hotels in Orlando.

General contractor and construction management firm Kellogg & Kimsey Inc. said it has the contract to build the new Saks Fifth Avenue at the mall.

The two-story, 80,000- square-foot Saks Fifth Avenue will include impressive modern finishes and an exclusive in-store restaurant, Kellogg & Kimsey said.

Construction of the department store began June 3.

The mall’s opening target is October 2014.
