World Equestrian Center Hotel is undergoing construction in Ocala, Florida. The $11.7 million venture will offer 400 suite-like rooms in a five-story building. This will be the second hotel on the World Equestrian Center’s 378-acre campus.
Sales have officially launched for Alba Palm Beach, a 22-story waterfront residential condominium tower located at 4714 North Flagler Drive, directly along the Intracoastal Waterway in West Palm Beach. Designed by Spina O’Rourke + Partners with Schmidt Nichols as the landscape architect, and developed by BGI Companies along with Blue Road Group, the development is a collection of 55 luxury residences with two- and three-bedroom units, and four two- and three-story townhomes with four bedrooms, offering residents a variety of desirable amenities including an entire 25,500-square-foot, sixth-floor amenity level with sunrise and sunset swimming pools, as well as on-site private docks with boat slips exclusively for owners. In pre-sales, Alba Palm Beach received a strong response with more than 30 percent of the building reserved.
Construction’s expected to start on Mr. Krymwood, a hotel coming to Miami, Florida, in mid-2023. Right now, the venture’s currently in its schematic drawings phase. Once construction begins, it will ideally take 18 months to complete.
Brightline, the only provider of modern, eco-friendly, intercity rail in America, has completed its first major construction zone (Zone 2) on its 170-mile extension from West Palm Beach to Orlando International Airport (OIA). One of four zones along this extension, Zone 2 is a 3.5-mile-long section on Brightline’s corridor leading into OIA and represents one of the most complex and challenging areas for construction in the entire project. The Orlando extension is 70 percent complete and employs more than 1,300 daily construction workers and is scheduled to be finished by the end of 2022. The Middlesex Corporation, based in Orlando, served as the general contractor, and constructed the corridor over 33 months through the work of over 100 employees who logged more than 419,000 hours.
Plans are underway for the Museum of Science & History Genesis Project (MOSH), a $85 million museum in Jacksonville, Florida. The project will provide 130,000 square feet of exhibition space, as well as a new planetarium.
