Florida Mall to get major makeover

Updated:

ORLANDO, Fla. - The Florida Mall is about to get a major makeover, and perhaps a lot busier.

WFTV obtained renderings of the new food court pavilion that will take up a portion of the former Saks Fifth Avenue building facing Sand Lake Road.

Officials said more than 100,000-square feet will be repurposed to include healthier food options and more retail space.

Construction should be done by 2015.
