Orlando, Fla. — Unicorp National Developments Inc. has unveiled plans for O-Town West, a $1 billion mixed-use development in Orlando.
The development will feature retail, restaurants, upscale apartments, a 600-car garage and a water show in the style of The Fountains of Bellagio in Las Vegas.
The retail portion of the 82-acre development will be housed in two segments: the Village at O-Town West and the Boardwalk at O-Town West, according to reports by Orlando Weekly. The Village will feature retailers offering everyday necessities, including a national grocery store. The Boardwalk will offer new-to-market restaurants and retail.
A 15,000-unit multifamily community is also planned for the development, alongside 300 to 400 homes, all of which will overlook a recreational lagoon by Miami-based Crystal Lagoons.
Groundbreaking is slated for early 2019, with a grand opening projected for summer 2020, Orlando Weekly reports.
Unicorp has developed over $2.5 billion worth of commercial and residential real estate, with a focus on retail, mixed-use centers, multifamily and master-planned communities.
The company recently developed I-Drive 360 in Orlando, a mixed-use development featuring an observation wheel known as the Coca-Cola Orlando Eye. A $100 million Phase II is currently under development at the center, which will include a zipline, ropes courses, a five-story apartment building with a rooftop pool, and a tower-based thrill ride.
