SARASOTA, Fla. - The new University Town Center mall going up near I-75 and University Parkway continues to create a buzz on the Suncoast, and its developers have released a digital rendering.

It shows what the inside of the mall will look like. And while it doesn't show the names of all the stores expected to be in the mall, it creates an image which has many in the community expecting high end retailers.

"I'm excited about the mall. We live really close; it’s going to give us a lot more opportunity to shop," says one shopper.

"You're going to have various manufactures in here that you don't even have presently, and that’s an asset to all of us,” says Sarasota resident Al reseano.

The mall is set to open in November of this year.

"All of our anchors are under construction; we have Sax Fifth Avenue and Macy's, and everything is going to plan," says Octavio Ortiz of Taubman Centers.
