The BBX division also has sold 15.46 acres of the land at Gardens on Millenia to Costco Wholesale Corporation.  Costco plans to build an a big-box store there measuring about 152,000 square feet and gas station near the store.

The Gardens on Millenia is located just east of The Mall at Millenia on Millenia Boulevard and is accessible from I-4 and Florida’s Turnpike. —Mike Seemuth
