WMG Development is scooping up land in Apopka with plans for commercial development

WMG Development is proposing a new commercial building in Apopka that features a coffee shop and medical office space.

WMG Development just recently submitted preliminary plans for what it intends to build on one of several pieces of properties it assembled in Apopka last year.

The national real estate company is in discussions with the city’s Development Review Committee so it may build a small commercial building across from the Shoppes At Wekiva Plaza retail center.


Proposed plans show the company wants to construct a 6,774-square-foot building that will feature 4,240 square feet of medical office space and a 2,534-square-foot coffee shop.

A conceptual site plan shows the development may feature a drive-through component. Kimley-Horn is the civil engineer.


WMG bought the nearly 4-acre site at 1506 Rock Springs Rd. for $4.05 million in September.

The deal joins another set of transactions that took place last year by the company in Apopka.

In November, WMG assembled 1.88 acres just north of the recently completed Publix Super Market at 3080 W. Kelly Park Rd.

Records show the company paid a total of $1.5 million for three parcels at 5012 Plymouth Sorrento Rd. and 3001 and 3013 W. Kelly Park Rd.

Plans for those properties have not yet been submitted, according to Apopka’s planning manager Bobby Howell. The assemblage contains one manufactured home and two older single-family homes.

Scott Hoene, a senior project manager for WMG, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

WMG also has a roughly 70-acre assemblage of mostly-vacant properties around 12329 Winter Garden Rd. and vacant one-off parcels in Lake Nona and Ocoee.

The Chicago-based company has an office in Winter Garden and specializes in retail, health care and restaurant development. WMG Development is active in 33 states and has more than 58 projects, according to its website.
