AdventHealth plans to build a new facility near its downtown-area campus.
The Altamonte Springs-based nonprofit health system is seeking city of Orlando approval for a 12-story medical office building with a parking garage at a listed address of 225 E. Rollins St.
The project — codenamed “Project Lego” and slated to be built on 15 parcels of land — has not submitted additional project documents with the city of Orlando yet, said city spokeswoman Samantha Holsten.
AdventHealth representatives declined to comment.
The health system is being represented by Orlando-based GrayRobinson law firm for its application seeking site plan approval.
The facility would be built inside AdventHealth Health Village, a 172-acre mixed-use community surrounding AdventHealth’s downtown Orlando campus. The longterm plan for the district includes:
- Room for up to 800 additional hospital beds
- 600,000 square feet of medical office space
- 100,000 square feet of general office space
- 100,000 square feet of retail space
- Up to 670 residential units
- A future hotel
Some of that residential development already has kicked off in the area. Orlando-based Ustler Group of Cos. and Atlanta-based Wood Partners are underway on construction of the 285-unit Alta at Health Village apartment complex at Orange Avenue and Winter Park Street, which is expected to be completed by mid-2021.
Ustler Group of Cos. President Craig Ustler supports having a diverse mix of real estate uses there, because they help enliven the area and add to the hospital’s presence, he told Orlando Business Journal.
