MALL AT MILLENIA


Before the Mall at Millenia opened its doors to deep-pocketed shoppers back in 2002, the area was a forgettable, even derelict, wasteland. But in true “If you build it, they will come” fashion, Conroy Road and its environs flourished, with housing, offices, restaurants, attractions and, yes, more shopping added to the area in the ensuing years. Millenia now draws a mix of locals and tourists alike, many lured by the promise of reasonable rents, haute couture and cuisine safe enough for all palates. While the mall has single-handedly transformed this once-blighted strip, the neighborhood’s character is still deemed unsavory by many prospective residents, primarily for its poor walkability, crime and general overdevelopment. For the occasional visitor and weekend shopper, however, the area is a virtual paradise.
