$200M Orlando Magic complex, other projects set for city approvals
The Orlando City Council has three big projects on its agenda for today, headlined by a zoning change for the $200 millionOrlando Magic entertainment complex in downtown Orlando.
The council is set to approve changes to the team’s site for the new complex — a 7.82-acre north of West Church Street, east of South Division Avenue, south of West Central Boulevard and west of South Hughey Avenue — for the new mixed-use development.
This is just one of several more approvals needed to finalize the project, including the Magic’s related SED Development LLC buying the land, which is set to happen this month. Here are some other roadblocks the team might face en route to starting the project.
Meanwhile, here are a few other things on the city’s June 2 agenda:
Franklin, Tenn.-based UP Development Inc. is seeking a change to the development plan for Orlando Fashion Square mall to add multi-family residential units and additional retail and office uses. This plan got recommended approval from the city’s municipal planning board last month.
The second reading of an ordinance that would allow for Citi Towers, a 22-story, 223-unit apartment complex with 22,300 square feet of commercial use on a 0.7-acre site on the northeast corner of East Church Street and Lake Avenue by Naples-based Summa Development Group LLC. This is the first of a four-phase development and the request also is seeking to increase the maximum allowed project to include 710 units, documents showed. A first reading of the ordinance was on May 12.
