It will be built on one of the largest undeveloped tracts in the Central Business District of downtown Orlando. The 3.57 acre project is located on the remaining undeveloped parcels of the Crescent Central Station project. The high-profile location is adjacent to the downtown Lynx Sunrail station and across the street from the Orange County Courthouse.

There is a 60 ft. strip of land located between the proposed development site and the rail lines to the east. This land has been redeveloped into a pedestrian path/linear park that include an extension of Gertrude's Walk urban trail.

The project will be built in three phases:

  1. Phase 1 includes 262 residential units in a 17-story tower. The Phase 1 units also wrap the Orange Avenue and Livingston Street facades of the garage podium. Additionally, Phase 1 includes 41,000 square feet of retail/commercial space on the ground floor, and approximately 663 parking spaces in a 9- level podium garage. The future Phase 2 will include 266 residential units in a 25-story tower including the 9-level podium garage with approximately 630 parking spaces.

  2. Phase 3 will eventually add 361 residential units in a 24-story tower including the 9-level podium garage with approximately 223 parking spaces in the completed podium garage.

To the north is the 6 story, 276 unit mixed use apartment building Crescent Central Station with 15,000 sq. ft. of ground level retail and an integrated parking garage. Under construction one block south is the 11 story, 368 unit Orange and Robinson Apartments project with a 729 space parking garage at 336 N Orange Avenue (MAP).
