Crescent Central Station to Be Built by Winter Park Construction
- Dec 02, 2013
With pedestrian connectivity to LYNX and the highly anticipated SunRail commuter rail service, a linear park and a pedestrian plaza nearby, Crescent Central Station will be Downtown Orlando’s first truly transit oriented development. Crescent Communities picked Winter Park Construction to construct the luxury urban infill, mid-rise/mixed-use project.
The development is only the first phase of an overall master plan affecting a whole city block, with office buildings, a structured parking and a hotel to come. The building, designed by Lord, Aeck & Sargent will include a seven-story concrete parking garage surrounded by five stories of wood-framed multifamily units over a double-height concrete podium incorporating approximately 12,000 square feet of retail space. Apartment floor plans will range from studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom floor plans up to two-story brownstone-style townhomes. The $39 million, 279-unit project includes further enhancements such as a terrace-level sun deck, courtyard pool, lounge space, fitness center, a pet grooming salon and bike repair shop.
With the site located on Orange Avenue, between Amelia Street and Livingston Street, Crescent Central Station will be just a few blocks away from downtown. Groundbreaking is scheduled in November and the six-story building is expected to begin preleasing next autumn.
WPC is considered one of the nation’s most respected general contractors and leading construction companies. The developer earns about $150 million in annual revenue and has more than 1.75 billion square feet of completed projects on its reference-list, including 25,000 multifamily units, 15,000 timeshare units and 3,000 hotel rooms. For 40 years, the company has provided pre-construction, general contracting, construction management, and green building services throughout the U.S.
