A large open air shopping mall totaling 1.5 million square feet is currently under construction in Posner Park. There are shops currently open there, and more are opening in the near future. When completed, it will be one of the largest retail centers in Florida and located just 5 minutes away from The Shire development. A separate property development at Champions Gate is just 1.5 miles away and has a 36 hole championship golf course, the Omni Resort hotel, shops and an upscale supermarket.

The Homeowner's Association (HOA) fee is $192/mth and this includes maintenance of all the common areas, lawn service of your own yard and basic cable television provision, which will provide you with about 50 to 60 TV channels.
