As reported by Bob Moser of GrowthSpotter, HERE, a local development group is looking to build the region’s largest roundabout, at the corner of SR 17-92 and Orange Avenue in Winter Park, as a centerpiece to an up-and-coming mixed-use project. The working name for the project is “Winter Park Station.”
The project is part of a massive land buy that Demetree Global (Website) has been spearheading at the six-way intersection for the past few years. Demetree now owns almost 10 acres of the 14+ acres that abut the crossroads, including the former home of Lombardi’s Seafood, Inc., the Mercantile Bank Plaza property along Orange. Demetree Global is
represented by affiliated with the law offices of Orange County Commissioner, Ted Edwards.
We’ve reached out to the City of Winter Park to see if there have been any offers made by Demetree Global for the City-owned property at the intersection. UPDATE: The City of Winter Park informed us that the developer met with them about six months ago, but that nothing official had been submitted, yet.
This project is still in its infancy and nothing official has been filed by Demetree, at this time.
