Alabama-based developer Home Communities Company has hired CBRE to handle retail leasing efforts for Floridian Town Center, a new mixed-use town center at 3355 W. Orange Blossom Trail in Apopka.
Home Communities Company is the managing partner of an investment group, including Corporate Realty and HC + Resources, that purchased the site in 2022.
Plans for the 65-acre site include 600 multifamily units, a 180-unit senior living complex, a 120-room hotel and ample space for retailers, restaurants, healthcare services and offices. Phase 1 of construction on multifamily units is expected to begin in Q3 2023 with first phase of units delivering to market by early 2025.
“The Floridian Town Center project complements the growth already taking place in Apopka,” said Home Communities Principal Jimmy Holloway. “We are creating a new space in the City of Apopka and metro Orlando area where businesses can thrive and residents can live, work and play.”
Corporate Realty President and CEO Robert Simon added, “Our team has a wealth of experience and adding a skilled retail partner like CBRE was a vital next step for this development. CBRE’s operation in Orlando knows the market better than anyone, and their expertise is a great asset not only for us, but also for businesses looking to locate in this area.”
“I’m excited to see this development and grateful to Home Communities Company for bringing new life to this site,” said Apopka Mayor Bryan Nelson. “One of my biggest priorities as mayor has been to revitalize our community and provide our citizens with more quality housing, curated dining, retail and entertainment options. The Floridian Town Center delivers on all that and more.”
Cabot Jaffee and James Mitchell with CBRE in Orlando will lead retail leasing efforts. Spaces ranging from 3,000 square feet up to 100,000 square feet will be available for occupancy beginning in Q4 2024.
“Floridian Town Center will be a premier retail destination for Apopka and the surrounding metro area. The development site is surrounded by a dense residential population with excellent connectivity to major thoroughfares with nearby access to the interchange of Highway 441 and State Road 429,” said CBRE First Vice President Cabot L. Jaffee III.
