Mixed-Use Development Proposed For Prime Location In Downtown Winter Garden

A local developer wants to build a mixed-use development with retail and residential components on a prime location along Plant Street in Downtown Winter Garden.

Orlando-based Atrium Capital Group is behind the project, Plant Street Commons, which is proposed to include ten apartments, eight two-story townhomes, and approximately 5,000 square feet of retail. The property is located at 419 W. Plant. St. on the northwestern corner of Plant St. and N. Central Ave.

A three-story building with ground-floor retail will front Plant Street, with the top two floors holding ten apartments. Additionally, the plans call for three townhomes to be built along Central Ave. and five townhomes to face Bay St. to the north of the property. There will also be a total of 27 parking spaces, 16 of which will be set aside for retail, 20 for apartment residents, and 16 for the townhomes in rear-facing garages.

Property records indicate that Atrium purchased the approximately 1-acre property for about $1.9 million in June 2022. Currently, the property holds two-single family homes along Bay Street, which will be replaced by townhomes. The current zoning for the property is Planned Commercial District (PCD) with a future land use of low-density residential.

Atwell is the civil engineer and surveyor on the property, and Silling Architects is the project architect.

“Plant St Commons will provide 5,000 SF of retail on Plant St, 10 Apartments, and 8 Townhomes on the backside of the site transitioning into the neighborhood. Winter Garden, with its undeniable beauty, serves as the perfect location for this small-scale mixed-use project”, said Adam Wonus, Partner at Atrium Capital Group, in a statement provided to GrowthSpotter.

Wonus said that the project is still preliminary, so it is too early on in the process to be looking for tenants for the retail. However, retail space is in high demand in Downtown Winter Garden, which is known for its shops, dining options, and weekly farmers market. Downtown Winter Garden hasn’t seen the explosive kind of growth that other parts of the city have in recent years, but the neighborhood continues to steadily grow with small infill developments.
