The developer responsible for the Dr. Phillips Dellagio and the I-Drive 360 development known for the Coca-Cola Orlando Eye — as well as other projects mixing residences and shops in Winter Park, Dr. Phillips, Lake Nona and Lake Mary — is working on his biggest project yet.
The Otown West overall development now consist of 6 individual projects with 4 retail centers consisting of over 500,000 sf of space, 800 multi-family units and 200 single family units.
“We’re trying to create a whole place. We’re trying to create a complete sense of place with dining, entertainment, shopping and living,” Whittall said. The various aspects of the project would be branded with the O-Town West name.
With a history of launching projects with a signature feature, Whittall said O-Town West would include a boardwalk with shops and restaurants offering outdoor experiences and overlooking a body of water with “water shows” featuring jet fountains and lights throughout the day. He likened the entertainment to a former Orlando attraction called Dancing Waters. “The boardwalk will be very cool,” he said.
The O-Town Village part of the project would include jogging trails, a dog park, apartments and single-family houses starting in the $500,000 range, he added. It would also be centered on a clear-lagoon style water body for residents’ use.
