A 40,000 sq ft former citrus packing plant on 3.7 acres at 1061 Tildenville School Road in Winter Garden will go through adaptive reuse starting this year and come out the other end as a dedicated space for artisanal food and eateries, retail, art, community meeting space, and office space if the project's future and use request gets approved on June 27th by Winter Garden City Commission according to Growthspotter.
The Packing Plant is a approximately a 27 minute drive from downtown Orlando.
The project sounds similar to East End Market in Orlando and Oxford Exchange in Tampa. Both projects feature multiple uses within an adaptive reuse scenario.
Central Florida has been receiving announcements left and right for large scale projects featuring multiple tenants in both existing and new construction buildings, but most have focused solely on food. Our Orlando Food Hall Guide maps out all the known projects as the writing of this piece.
Hamlin Market, the closest in proximity to The Packing Plant, will be a 26,000 sq ft market offering a collection of dining and retail options, a rooftop bar, and outdoor seating. Gourmet Market, the closest in size, will be a 20-restaurant 30,000 sq ft food hall part of the "first luxury branded development in Central Florida" called Magic Place.
