In News and Progress

Just three blocks east of Lake Killarney Shores of Winter Park, is the mini corridor some have dubbed “The Golden Mile”.  Indeed, the stretch of Orlando Avenue (Highway 17-92) between Fairbanks Avenue and Lee Road increases in value almost daily with hundreds of millions of development dollars invested over the past five or six years.

The Orlando Business Journal recently profiled this accelerated commercial development.  Attracted to the affluent Winter Park suburb, developers are replacing worn, 50- to 60-year-old buildings with a stunning selection of upscale and just-plain-fun restaurants and bars, boutique shopping, iconic grocery stores, fitness facilities, cinemas and assorted service providers. 

Casa de la Ensenada – nearing completion

Looking ahead, new projects include a new hotel near Hillstone Restaurant with over 120 rooms on Lake Killarney.  Plans also are underway for a state-of-the-art medical building, Class A office buildings and exclusive shopping and restaurants teeming with the “wow factor”. 

The City of Winter Park is partnering with the Florida Department of Transportation in preliminary planning to beautify the road and alleviate traffic congestion.  They intend to transform Orlando Avenue from a destination road to a pedestrian-friendly street with shade trees, bicycle lanes and versatile trails more in keeping with the flavor of Winter Park.
