SPANISH FORT, AL
BASS PRO SHOPS OUTDOOR WORLD
This 140,000 SF store is an anchor to the Spanish Fort Town Center 200-acre mixed retail development. The store incorporates the character of the surrounding coastal lodge theme present around the Alabama Mobile Bay region.
The exterior sand colored stucco and weathered gray siding is a back drop for the variety of native plants and landscapes surrounding a winding stream and calming pond, equipped with teaching areas for local conservation groups.
The interior is full of exciting features including a 23,500 gallon aquarium with a wrap around stair and walk through cave, and kids arcade with themes based on a historic Spanish Galleon shipwreck.
After experiencing the store, customers can dine in the 8,000 SF Islamorada Fish Company restaurant with 12,500 gallon salt water aquarium and 80 seat outdoor covered patio, all decorated with aquatics from the surrounding Mobile and Gulf of Mexico.
