Michael Collard Properties has begun permitting one of the final phases of a large 108-acre mixed-use community in Oviedo, anchored by the $70 million Strand apartments and city amphitheater.
The developer recently submitted a St. Johns River Water Management District application seeking approvals to build its planned City Place townhome community within the Oviedo on the Park mixed-use project. The Preliminary Subdivision Plan for City Place will go before the Oviedo City Council next month, tentatively, along with a Site Development Order.
Plans subdivide about 3 acres on the northeast corner of City Walk Lane and Mike Roberto Way into 25 townhome lots, a parking tract, and an 0.11-acre lot for future commercial development.
Each townhome lot features an office unit on the ground level and a two-story townhome unit on the second and third floors. In addition, the lots feature private courtyards, and a separate residential studio/guest house unit above a two-car garage, totaling fifty residential units and 25 commercial suites.
Buyers have the option to lease the ground floor office/retail units, which average 700 square feet each, as well as the studio/guest house units, which average 488 square feet each. Three-bedroom townhomes feature balconies and gourmet island kitchens. Bedrooms will be located on the third floor and feature walk-in closets, full bathrooms, and a laundry room, according to online pre-construction listings.
The mixed-use townhomes will sit directly across a new food hall and brewery under construction by the same developer, west of City Walk Lane.
The planned 14,500-square-foot Food Factory food hall venue will feature eight chef-inspired micro restaurants, according to plans. Marketing material states the Factory Bar will serve distillery-inspired craft cocktails, beer, and wine in an “industrial factory chic setting.” The venues will share a beer garden pavilion.
According to Seminole County records, the developer broke ground on the food hall and brewery earlier this spring.
MCP paid $4.7 million for 8.33 acres within the Oviedo on the Park development in 2018. PAC Land Development is the master developer of the mixed-use community.
Attempts to reach Michael Collard, founder and owner of MCP, were unsuccessful. The developer is partnering with Oviedo general contractor Wilson & Company on the project.
Oviedo on the Park is located about three miles from the University of Central Florida in an area of Oviedo that is quickly growing.
Just south of the mixed-use community, Atlanta-based Brand Properties is close to breaking ground on its 297-unit Ellington at Oviedo Park multifamily project that will consist of 12,000 square feet of ground-level retail space. The developer committed $80,000 to fund three art installations by artist Adam Pinsley that will be placed beside a new 8-foot-wide sidewalk next to Ellington at Oviedo Park, along Clara Lee Evans Way.
