The Sevens, a mixed-use building project at 777 N Orange Ave [GMap] in the North Quarter district of Downtown Orlando, will break ground later today.
When we first told you about the nine-story building a year ago, the project was originally set to break ground earlier this year.
The building, being developed by Pizutti, spans almost the entire block on Orange Ave between Park Lake St and Colonial Drive (stopping just short of Colonial).
The building includes 333 apartments, 8,000 square feet of retail space and an integrated parking garage.
The retail space will be along Orange Ave on the northern half of the building.
Naeem Coleman, Manager of Economic Development for Pizzuti, told Bungalower that he expects a restaurant and service retail to occupy the space.
“The Sevens will be a luxury 9 story building with the amenity area on the top floor. This will give us amazing views of the southern skyline while offering a neighborhood feel,” Coleman said.
The building is scheduled to be complete early 2016.
The project dates back to December 2008 when Pizutti first proposed an 11-story building on this property.
