More Orlando-area food hall news:
The plans submitted to the City show approximately eighteen structures constructed using repurposed shipping containers. Most of the structures will be single-story, on-grade structures. Some structures will include a second level for seating area. Structure height will not exceed 25 feet from base elevation. The site will be enclosed by a 4 ft and 5 ft fence. Mobile Food Vendors will access the site via the existing right-in-only curb cut on Tavistock Lakes Blvd (which will become gated) and a service aisle along the north property line. Alcohol consumption will occur on-site, within the enclosed fencing.
Lake Nona Land Company, LLC is requesting a two-year temporary use permit with the possibility of five (5) one-year administrative extension reviews by the Planning Official. The subject site currently provides temporary parking to existing Town Center uses in the interim before the completion of a parking garage ("Garage G").
The proposed temporary food and entertainment use occupies a portion of this existing temporary parking lot. Garage G will be complete prior to the development of subject temporary use. In addition to the remaining temporary parking, Garage G will provide sufficient parking supply for the anticipated parking demand.
The project goes before City Council Tuesday May 29th, 2pm at City Hall.
