"We're in the very early stages of a very large-scale review," said Tom Polk, Sarasota County planning and development services director.
Planners still need to determine that Benderson has submitted sufficient information before starting on a formal review of the project, he said. Polk couldn't estimate when the matter would come before the County Commission for a vote.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the state and Manatee and Sarasota counties would work with Benderson before then to resolve issues, including environmental impacts and increased traffic, he said.
The commercial and office buildings would affect a wetland, a mesic hammock and pine flatwoods, according to Benderson's application, which states that the wetland losses would be offset in Manatee County.
Polk said the developer and counties also need to coordinate with the Florida Department of Transportation, which plans to create a diverging diamond interchange at University Parkway and I-75 to alleviate traffic backups that already occur there.
Historically, the county has had Benderson help build projects, like the Cattlemen Road extension, and reimbursed the company with impact fee credits, Polk said, which could occur again with this project.

The developer wants to relocate two proposed hotels closer to the rowing facility to accommodate those visitors, said Tom Polk, planning director for Sarasota County.
Originally, Bendersons plans for University Town Center called for 1.6 million square feet of retail space, 220,000 square feet of office space, 500 hotel rooms and about 1,750 residential units, the Herald has reported.
Benderson now wants to reduce the residential units to 750, and eliminate a parking garage, Polk said.
