SARASOTA, Fla. -- The developer of the new Mall at University Town Center wants to build more commercial and office space in the area.

Benderson Development wants to transform more than a half million square feet northeast of the new mall near Interstate 75, on University Parkway.

If the plan moves forward, construction could begin as early as next year, and be completed in five years.

Office space would jump from 220,000 square feet to 320,000. A spokesperson for Benderson tells the Herald Tribune that they have been working on a layout for the property and has spoken to potential tenants.
