The design/build contract for the new City of Orlando Tennis Center at the Packing District has been awarded to Borrelli and Partners (Website), according to the company’s Principal, Jorge A. Borrelli.
The build partner for the project is H.J. High (Website) who have been responsible for projects like the Gatorland Stompin’ Gator Attraction, the OPD Equestrian Facility, the Dr. Phillips YMCA, and the new OPD Headquarters.
The City’s RFQ was seeking a vendor that could prepare the site, and construct a brand new Orlando Tennis Centre that will feature an expected 16 lighted tennis courts (five hard courts and 11 clay courts), a 4-5,000 SF professional building with lockers and meeting space, a maintenance building, and all utility connections, maintenance systems, and more.
The new Tennis Shop Pro Building will be LEED-certified and have a wraparound viewing porch/deck on at least three sides of the building for maximum tennis court-viewing pleasure.
The total budget for the design/build project is an estimated $5,500,000.
