A Master Site Plan for the development of The Packing District’s largest park has just been submitted to the City of Orlando along with a project narrative outlining the intention of the developer for greater connectivity to the surrounding neighborhood.
The park site, bound by John Young Parkway, Princeton, and Texas Avenue, now measures roughly 82-acres; 13 of which will house a master stormwater pond, a pavilion, passive lawns, and open spaces. A surface parking lot would provide 101 parking spaces for a future tennis center.
Pedestrian access will be served by minimum six-foot-wide sidewalks and a new trail system through the park that will connect to the rest of the city’s trail network.
The existing wetlands on the site will remain untouched.
Submitted separately were amendments to The Packing District’s Open Space Policies, sharing the proposed placement of trails, cycle tracks, open spaces, and the future 4Roots Farm location at the southernmost point of the development.
