The Seminole County Commission last Tuesday cleared the way for a large mixed-use project along International Parkway by signing off on a request to rezone 21 parcels from its original agricultural and office designation.
With the 4-1 vote, Winter Park-based multifamily developer Douglas Partners moves a step closer on a plan to bring more than 300 apartments, 406,437 square feet of nonresidential space, and a 120-room hotel to nearly 20 acres of land just west of Seminole Towne Center Mall.
According to conceptual plans by architecture firm Scott + Cormia, the 319-unit apartment community within the mixed-use project planned for Seminole County would be four stories with an attached parking garage. The building will include two courtyards, one of which will hold a pool.
The multifamily parcel, located along the north side of Woodruff Springs Road, totals 7.12 acres of the overall project site. The apartment community will feature 177 one-bedroom units between 617 and 798 square feet, 134 two-bedroom units between 1,192 and 1,028 square feet, and eight three-bedroom units of 1,415 square feet, according to conceptual plans.
The commercial parcels, to the north, south and west of the apartment site, total 10.98 acres. The largest commercial tract, of 6.8 acres, runs parallel to International Parkway.
The hotel proposed for the site is expected to cover as much as 130,000 square feet, according to Douglas Partners’ website.
Douglas Partners intends to build the apartments and sell off the commercial uses to other developers.
