Florida Today reports that Blue Origin founder Jeff Bezos will be in Cape Canaveral September 15 for a “significant announcement regarding the commercial launch industry.”

This is believed to be confirmation of the August 20 Florida Today report that state agency Space Florida had received authorization from its Board of Directors to close a deal with Blue Origin for lease of Launch Complex 36 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.

The deal reportedly would finally provide a tenant for Exploration Park. Space Florida held a groundbreaking ceremony at the site on June 25, 2010. Land was cleared, roads were paved and utilities buried. Since then, the site has been dormant. The property is on Kennedy Space Center land, publicly accessible from Space Commerce Road.
