$1B agrihood plan approved for East Orlando:

Orlando-based Project Finance & Development LLC’s plans for The Grow, a proposed $1 billion “agrihood” development in East Orlando, were approved on Tuesday by Orange Country commissioners. The project can now begin its design and permitting phase, and construction is set to start next summer. When complete, The Grow is set to include 2,078 homes, a 20-acre community park, a 9-acre working farm, a community barn, community gardens, an elementary school, and 172,000 square feet of commercial space. The 1,189-acre site is located behind the University of Central Florida. Opponents of The Grow consider the development “urban sprawl”, and disagree with development plans for land that has remained rural despite major nearby development. Supporters cited a need for housing as East Orlando has grown. Read more from the Orlando Business Journal >>
