New Publix Coming to Space Coast

Shoppers in North Brevard, Fla., will soon gain a new grocery option.

Titusville, Fla., city staff approved a site plan, called Colonial Coast Crossing, in early October that will feature a Publix supermarket, reports Florida Today.

When the store will break ground and open is uncertain. “I have not seen any timelines,” said Titusville City Engineer Woody Rice to the paper.

The project will fill more than 7.5 acres of wetlands. But RAM Realty Associates, the Palm Beach Gardens developer that plans the 46,013-s.f. Publix at the northwest corner of State Road 50 and Barna Road in Titusville, must first provide more information about how it will make up for the wetlands before the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will allow the store.

The store would be the Lakeland-based chain’s 24th on the Space Coast and in Sebastian in Indian River County.
