Disney’s multi-phase Flamingo Crossings hotel, retail, and residential project had been delayed for a decade before recent announcements about plans to proceed with development were made. Modifications to permits filed back in 2008 have been applied for today which finally give us a better idea of what the first phase of Orlando’s Flamingo Crossings will look like upon completion.
Documents attached to the permit application submitted by Orlando Hotel Group not only give design plans for grading, stormwater management, drainage, and utilities but also explain the full scope of the project. A letter enclosed states,
The Flamingo Crossings H2, H3, H4 & R5 project proposes construction of 4 hotels, a parking garage, at-grade parking areas, associated hotel amenities, a secondary stormwater collection system across parcels H2, H3, H4 & R5 of Flamingo Crossings Phase 1, as well as minor driveway modifications and sidewalk modifications within the right of way of Flagler Ave within Flamingo Crossings Phase 1.”
As far as the hotels listed, the plans attached show (from west to east) a Residence Inn, a Fairfield Inn, and a Homewood Suites with an adjacent structure listed only as H2 Suites. Each hotel hosts a pool, with the likely related Homewood Suites and H2 Suites sharing a single pool area. The Residence and Fairfield Inns are separated by a substantial pond, and significant parking area is shown.
By the time all three phases of Flamingo Crossings are complete, the vast development will encompass seven hotels and 237,000 square feet of retail space, as well as nearly 1,300 apartments whose designs have already been released. Work is expected to begin in 2018.
