Park Development files plan for office, retail at City Center West Orange

With construction well underway at City Center West Orange in Ocoee, Park Development Corp. CEO David Townsend has filed plans for the project's fifth phase, to include a mixed-use building and future retail pad.

The new building at 251 Maine St. replaces the planned Assisted Living Facility on the original CCWO Master Plan.


Fugleberg Koch designed the 20,000-square-foot Mission-style building, which has retail shops on the ground floor and offices upstairs. The building's signature element is a nearly 70-foot high tower with an observation deck.

Plans filed with the St. Johns River Water Management District indicate the project includes site development for a second commercial building to be constructed at a later date.


Terra-Max Engineering performed the civil work for the 12-acre project. Structural and mechanical engineering work was performed by IBC and MiGre, respectively.  Verlander is the landscape architect.

The master-planned CCWO community is projected to contain 823,000 square feet of commercial space, 1,720 residential units and a hotel.

Park Development kicked off horizontal development in 2017 and has been in vertical construction for the first two condominium/retail buildings for much of this year. The 8-story buildings have 500 condo units, more than 200,000 square feet of retail space -- including more than 50,000 square feet of waterfront dining on Lake Bennett -- and a 215-room Hilton Garden Inn.

The concrete topping slab is scheduled to be competed in December, according to the developer's website. The Phase 1 retail component is scheduled to open in October 2019.
