A 14-acre plot in Brevard County could soon find new life as one of Central Florida’s newest attractions. The Port Canaveral Aquarium is a $100 million venture that will offer 130,000 square feet of new construction. Florida Today reports that the general contractor hopes to break ground in 2024 and complete the venture by 2027 at the latest.
Construction has topped out on Phase 1 of Society Orlando, a two-tower mixed-use development of 28 and 16 stories under construction at 434 North Orange Avenue in Downtown Orlando’s Central Business District. Designed by Orlando-based Baker Barrios and developed by Property Markets Group and Raven Capital Management, the approximately 350-foot-tall first phase will yield 484 residential units atop a massive podium with 33,000 square feet of ground floor commercial space and parking spaces. John Moriarty & Associates is the general contractor with Baker Concrete Construction managing concrete construction for the project, which is located on the northwest corner of the intersection between North Orange Avenue and West Livingston Street.
Port Orange will soon be home to a new housing development. Meet Hawks Mill. The $70 million housing complex will feature 336 luxury apartments. The size and layout plans of these units are not currently available. However, the community is brimming with amenities, including a 1,900-square-foot fitness center and a 10,000-square-foot clubhouse.
Miami-Dade County planners received an Administrative Site Plan Review (ASPR) application for the first portion of Upland Park Phase 1, a 15-story mixed-use building planned for 11897 Northwest 12th Street in Sweetwater, Florida, dubbed Building L. Designed by Arquitectonica and developed by Terra Group (Terra) under the Terra International Services, LLC, this phase of the development will consist of 384 multi-family dwelling units, approximately 50,000 square feet of grocery and retail, and approximately 853 parking spaces in a structured garage. The 2.575-acre subject property is owned by Miami-Dade County and leased to Terra for developmental purposes, representing a fraction of the overall planned 43-acre Upland Park transit-oriented mixed-use community where the developer is spending $1 billion to build nearly 2,000 residential units, 200,000 square feet of retail, a 12-story hotel, a 16- story office building, medical facilities and a school.
Corradi Construction Group hopes to break ground on the Wesley at Fillmore in Fall 2022. Before construction starts, developers will demolish two single-family homes. The multi-family development, located in Hollywood, Florida, will host 57 apartments in a four-story building. The venture will cost around $10 million to build, and it was designed by Kaller Architecture.
