Located on the southwest corner of Central Florida and John Young parkways, the 11.43-acre site is set within the Grande Lakes Resort golf course, and currently serves as overflow parking for The Ritz-Carlton and J.W. Marriott hotels.
A land owner affiliate of Marriott International filed a Development Plan on Monday for the project, which proposes 37 single-family homes on the site. Marriott retained ownership of the 11.43 acres when it sold the Grande Lakes Resort golf course and two hotels to Blackstone Group in 2015.
The Ritz-Carlton Residences branding has been applied to 30 luxury home projects in varied stages of development across the United States, including six in Florida. Each private community is usually managed by The Ritz-Carlton hotel company, and features concierge services, in-residence dining and other unique service amenities.
Plans show the homes would be two-story, with two-bedroom and four-bedroom options ranging from 2,688 square feet to more than 3,200 square feet of conditioned area.
Each home would have a two-car garage and two driveway parking spaces. Three of the homes will be stand-alone, while the other 34 will share a wall as 17 duplex buildings.
Close to 54 percent of the property (6.15 acres) would be developed, with 5.28 acres preserved as open space. The development would have a 5,993-square-foot clubhouse with swimming pool, and access to the community would be gated.
Officials with Unicorp and Jones Clayton Construction did not respond to requests for comment on Monday about their investment roles in the project.
Jones Clayton has designed and built luxury homes in the Four Seasons Private Residences Orlando and the Golden Oak community, both at Walt Disney World Resort.
Along with the DP application, a Change Determination Review request was filed to convert a portion of resort hotel units allowed on the Land Use Plan within the Project ABC PD for single-family attached homes.
