Just a month after receiving approval to build the controversial Lakeside Crossing, a retail and restaurant development on the site of Winter Park's Mount Vernon Inn and Red Fox Lounge, Unicorp developer Chuck Whittall has asked the city for another change in the plans.
Unicorp National Developments has filed a request to add 75 parking spaces and a third floor to the parking garage currently permitted to be two floors tall.
The project has been through a number of iterations. It started out as a project dubbed "The Luxe" which included 172 high-end apartments. Later the residential component was eliminated altogether from the site plan, which was renamed Lakeside Crossing.
City staff has yet to weigh in on the proposed change; however a lack of parking in the area is a sensitive issue. Whittall's development across the street, which includes Trader Joe's on N. Orlando Avenue, has sparked complaints for lack of enough parking spaces to meet demand.
