Creighton Construction & Development has begun a demolition and renovation project that will redevelop a portion of the busy Inverness Center shopping plaza in Lauderhill, Florida.

Creighton is demolishing a vacant restaurant building and renovating an existing laundromat, converting that facility into a modern 7-Eleven convenience store. Outside, Creighton will construct five fuel dispensers with 10 fueling positions under a protective canopy structure.

Located at 5590 W. Oakland Park Blvd., just west of the Florida Turnpike and across from Lauderhill City Hall, the 7-Eleven will feature a large 4,285-square-foot convenience store and ample parking.

Creighton’s team for this project is being led by land development manager Roger Posey and construction project manager Bill Griffith.

The estimated completion date is January 2019.

Creighton has completed dozens of new 7-Eleven stores throughout the country in recent years, with several sites under construction at all times in Florida, Texas and Colorado.

7-Eleven, Inc. is the premier name and largest chain in the convenience-retailing industry. Based in Irving, Texas, 7-Eleven operates, franchises and licenses more than 66,000 stores in 17 countries, including 11,800 in North America. Outside of the U.S and Canada, there are 7-Eleven convenience stores in Japan, Taiwan, Thailand, South Korea, China, Malaysia, Mexico, Singapore, Australia, the Philippines, Indonesia, Norway, Sweden, Denmark and United Arab Emirates.
