 The Lowe’s building that will be constructed is a 94,000 square foot building which is a change from the originally planned 153,000 square foot building.  The originally proposed building size was denied by the Sarasota County Planning Commission, because they believed it would have been too large for the 20 acre parcel of land.  Wilson Miller is the land planning company that is behind the project and has said that this project will finally be moving forward after delays caused by a sluggish economy.

Lowe’s is expected to employ about 120 people for this store location. 

This will add a much needed convenience to the Palmer Ranch area.
