Mirrorton Developer May Seek Another Land-Purchase Delay

The Tampa developer that plans to develop 14 vacant acres east of the Lakeland Police Department headquarters into the Mirrorton apartment/townhouse community is considering asking the city for 60 more days before finalizing the $3.66 million land purchase. The Framework Group was first scheduled to close the deal by May but has the right to delay until September 21 and may seek 60 days beyond that, Lakeland Community Redevelopment Director Alis Drumgo said. The agency’s advisory board could either agree to an extension request or opt to seek a new developer.
