X Orlando to be the Largest Single Residential Project in Downtown Orlando
Updated: Feb 16, 2020
X Orlando is planned to be a mixed use project located at 434 N. Orange Avenue, the remaining undeveloped parcels of the Crescent Central Station project.
The total development plan for X Orlando includes the following: 889 residential units, 41,000 square feet of commercial/ retail space, and approximately 1,516 parking spaces. By far the largest single residential project in Downtown Orlando.
The project will be built in three phases. XSC Acquisitions, LLC is currently requesting an ARB Major Certificate of Appearance Approval for phase one of the X Orlando project. Phases Two and Three will each require an ARB final approval prior to submittal of building permits for the respective phases.
The subject site is bounded on the north by W. Amelia Street, on the east by N. Orange Avenue, on the south by W. Livingston Street and on the west by Gertrude’s Walk.
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 approximate- ly 630 parking spaces.
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.
At 3.57 acres, the subject property is one of the largest undeveloped tracts in the Central Business District. The high-profile location is adjacent to the downtown Lynx Sunrail station and across the street from the Orange County Courthouse. It occupies nearly an entire block and presents an unmatched opportunity to develop an enduring project that will significantly influence the physical and social landscape of downtown Orlando for decades.
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 adjacent Crescent Central Station project, to the north, is a 6-story, 276-unit multi-family building with 15,000 sq. ft. of ground level retail and an integrated parking garage.
