Get Inspired With Downtown Orlando’s Creative Village
It’s about time Downtown Orlando had a face lift! Current residents and visitors are eagerly anticipating the ALL new Creative Village. The Amway Arena area is soon to be transformed into a 68-acre mecca for creative minds, entertainment centers, and educational buildings. Currently, what is now home to the Parramore area are rundown buildings, and quite frankly, can be dangerous at times. The city plans on cleaning up and redeveloping this area in hopes to bring in positive influences to a district that is in dyer need of improvement.
Downtown Orlando’s Creative Village will make way for more job opportunities, with an estimated 6,500 jobs during the construction process and a total of 8,000 estimated permanent jobs for the local community post buildout. In addition, we can look forward to newer and better housing for mixed-income homes/apartments while redeveloping the area to welcome parks, grocery/drug stores, full service banking, and greater access to health care. If you’re currently living in Downtown Orlando the Creative Village will enhance our local economy by increasing higher traffic for our local businesses.
UCF Downtown Campus Gets Creative
Attention UCF students, are you tired of never being able to find parking on campus? Are you even more sick of having to leave your house an hour and a half before class to be able to make it on time? Well keep your fingers crossed for UCF’s potential Downtown Orlando location! This is terrific news for UCF students who have to commute to the East side of Orlando each week. A Downtown Orlando campus is perfect for the surrounding neighborhoods, not to mention the endless amounts of young adults and college students living in Downtown Orlando apartments.
The beautiful part of the all new Creative Village is that it’s going to attract more visitors to Downtown Orlando. In turn, hotels will be built to attract “out of towers” to visit our local bars, sports complexes, and entertainment venues. Get ready Orlando, something big is coming our way!
