Minto Moves Forward on Luxury Development
- Mar 09, 2015
Construction is progressing on Festival, Minto Communities’ latest residential development in the Champions Gate area of Orlando. Five luxury vacation villa models are scheduled for completion in early April.
Located about five miles from Walt Disney World, between Interstate 4 and Ronald Reagan Parkway, the gated community is being built on over 200 acres surrounded by natural woodlands and lakes. The 500 two-story villas will include private covered and screened lanai porches and plunge pools with optional cabana baths.
Festival will offer five floor plans ranging in size from 1,605 to 2,232 square feet. The Elation model is a three-bedroom two-bath configuration; the Imagine design offers four bedrooms with three baths; the Jubilee floor plan has four bedrooms and four baths; the Marvel comes with five bedrooms and four and a half baths, and the Splendor model represents the top of the range with five bedrooms and five and a half baths.
Minto also plans a central retail and entertainment area called Downtown Festival. Featuring shopping, dining, resort-style pool, private cabanas, children’s water park, gym, video arcade, sports courts, and bar and grill, the town center will be ready by this summer, according to Minto. Festival has been developed without utilizing Community Development District funding.
Ottawa-based Minto has completed more than 70,000 homes, including more than 20,000 in Florida, since its founding in 1955.
