A project tentatively known as “ECG Santa Rosa” has been proposed near Orlando Executive Airport. Spearheaded by Elmington, if approved, the venture could offer 200 apartments under the Live Local Act.
Homes would range from one-bedroom to three-bedroom apartments. There would be 100 one-bedroom homes, 60 two-bedroom homes, and the remaining would be three-bedroom units.
The Orlando Business Journal notes that 40 percent of the apartments (at least 80) would be offered as workforce/affordable housing units. The homes themselves would be divided among two four-story buildings on an 8.84-acre site.
Sources note that it’s unclear whether Elimington has the build site under contract. City records note that Central Florida Real Estate Investments and Developments purchased the property for $1.23 million nearly 10 years ago. The most recent renderings from Google Earth show that the future build site is mostly undeveloped.
ECG Santa Rosa is expected to be one of many properties that aim to benefit from the Live Local Act. The newly passed piece of legislature allows developers to bypass certain density restrictions and forgo the need for community hearings.
ECG Santa Rosa could take shape at 5640 Santa Rosa Drive, Orlando, FL, 32807, in Orange County. The community could be north of Florida 408 and east of Orlando Executive Airport.
