A real estate developer with more than 17 years of experience, Scott Fish serves as principal of UP Development in Franklin, Tennessee. Scott Fish has considerable experience as a developer in Florida as well, having redeveloped numerous properties in Orlando, including Fashion Square Mall.

Built more than 40 years ago, Fashion Square Mall is a 1.3 million square-foot shopping center anchored by such major retailers as Macy’s and Dillard’s, as well as a 42,000-square-foot cinema with 14 screens. The shopping center also features Kay Jewelers, PacSun, Charlotte Russe, Champs, Foot Locker, and Vans.

In 2013 UP Development acquired the property for redevelopment, which entailed a number of changes to the mall and adjacent parcels, including StrikeOuts Bowling & Entertainment, an 18,000-square-foot bowling alley with a sports bar and arcade. Parcels additions (buildings outside the mall) include DICK’S Sporting Goods and BB&T Bank.

The redevelopment also improved Fashion Square Mall’s accessibility by extending the bike and pedestrian path on Cady Way Trail. The extension completed the connection between Baldwin Park and the Orlando Fashion Square corridor.
