LAKELAND, Tennessee —
People in Lakeland are getting closer to having a new luxury place to live and shop.
The Lake District in Lakeland gave a progress report Monday. Workers have built the inline retail building walls and are preparing to erect the roof. Officials say they won't let the coronavirus delay their progress.
"It has not slowed us down. The only thing that slowed us down, unfortunately, was the bad weather, but everybody is happy to be here rather than to be sequestered at home," said Yehuda Netanel, The Lake District Project Leader.
The development will eventually be 160 acres of shopping and dining surrounding Sapphire lake. It will eventually be home to 2,000 people.
