The mixed use project called The Cannery at The Packing District broke ground Thursday at the northeast corner of The Packing District (Website).
The project will feature a grocery store, restaurants, a replica of the original Dr. Phillips Juice Stand – a once iconic building from decades past, and 307 residential units. The first residential unit is expected to be available for lease by the second quarter of 2021.
The name The Cannery in a nod to the history of the site where Dr. Phillips once canned oranges for his citrus enterprise.
Featured residential amenities include a pool and courtyard; two additional courtyards with entertainment areas; a lounge with roof deck; a resident lounge, a Wi-Fi lounge and game room; fitness facility with yoga and spin rooms; a dog park and dog wash; a bike shop; micro offices and a package room.
The project is being developed by nationally recognized multifamily residential developer Embrey Partners LTD (Website).
The Packing District near College Park encompasses 202 acres and is a $500 million transformational project focused on preserving and recapturing a defining part of Orlando’s history while providing a base of living and commerce.
