Originally, the complex was named "Belz Factory Outlet World" and included 175 stores in two indoor malls, four annexes and an outdoor designer outlet center. In Summer 2005, Prime Retail, who owns four other outlet malls in Florida, acquired the center and named it "Prime Outlets-Orlando". In September 2007, The mall reopened after a multimillion-dollar remodel into an open air lifestyle center and was again renamed as Prime Outlets-International for the road the mall is located on. In April 2008, the last phase of redevelopment opened with over 40 stores between Neiman Marcus Last Call and the Food Court.
In late August 2010, the center was acquired by Simon Property Group's Premium Outlet sector along with the majority of the Prime Outlet centers and was renamed Orlando Premium Outlets-International Drive in September 2010.
